Come visit the IT helpdesk for Internet connectivity concerns.

September 26, 2012 · Filed Under Information Technology · Comments Off 

The IT Helpdesk will temporarily run a local helpdesk in the Drapkin/Lenfest area from Thursday 09/27/12 through Friday 10/05/12. The support hours will be from 09:30am to 4:30pm.

The idea behind this endeavor is to:

  • help students register their wired and wireless cards.
  • assist with ExamSoft installations.
  • understand the Jerome Greene hall wireless issues in real-time.

The IT department needs to get a better understanding of the wireless situation on the 1st, 2nd and 3rd floors of Jerome Greene Hall. The trouble is, when we ask students to visit us in the JG731 helpdesk area, the movement of the laptop actually fixes itself. So, instead of asking you to bring your laptop upstairs, we will bring the helpdesk to you, for a one week period. This will give you a chance to report and resolve issues on the spot, as well as give the IT department an opportunity to collect stats in real-time.

You can find us in the Drapkin Lounge/Lenfest area, directly across from the Dean’s cup trophies. Our regular helpdesk locations will also be available during this time.

We look forward to seeing you and wishing you the best of luck during exams.

What Happened To My Law School Internet Connection?

September 25, 2012 · Filed Under Information Technology · Comments Off 

In short, you need to register your wireless and wired network cards.

We started the Fall 2012 semester with an open network that did not require registering your network card(s). Since then, more devices showed up on the law school network and exhausted all the available Internet addresses. So, the Information Technology department had to reverse course and close the network. We reverted the network to registered mode.

At first, we thought this would only affect a relatively small number of students, since :

  • most upperclass students should already be registered (open network was new this semester).
  • students who are taking exams were instructed to register their network card(s) in direct messages from the Registrar’s Office.
  • the IT helpdesk assisted students in registering their cards during the 8/15/12 to 8/23/12 notebook configuration session.

Admittedly, we did share mixed signals and conflicting information about this topic at the beginning of the semester. We apologize for any inconvenience and any confusion about this.

Here’s the good news, registering your network card is fast, easy, and a one-time task. You can visit the IT help desk anytime between 9:00am to 5:00pm (M-F) for help. Or,  you can download a notebook configuration manual located at http://www.law.columbia.edu/law_school/info_tech/Notebook#41245 and register your network cards on your own. Please keep in mind you should register both your wireless and wired adapters.

CLS IT will be adding more wireless access points in Lenfest Cafe and adjoining areas.

October 27, 2011 · Filed Under Information Technology · Comments Off 

If you have recently attempted to use a wireless connection in the Lenfest Cafe and adjoining areas, you may have experienced less than expected performance. The cause of the problem has been identified: Wireless demand has outpaced capacity in this area.

Here’s what IT is doing about the wireless network:

  • IT will be adding more wireless access points in the Lenfest Cafe and adjoining areas. We have already increased the number of access points in most classrooms; and will continue to add more access points in public spaces, starting with Lenfest Cafe.

Here’s what you can do now:

  • If/when a connectivity issues resurfaces, please visit us in JG731 so we can help troubleshoot on the spot.
  • Also, please ensure you are connected to a law school access point and not to a “rogue” access point. The quickest way to ensure you are connected to a Law school access point is to turn off your wireless card, then turn it on again and check that you are connected to an access point titled “Columbia University – Law”. If you are not sure how to do this, please stop by the IT Helpdesk in JG 731.

We hope you find this information helpful and stay tuned for more updates regarding this topic. In the meantime, thank you for your patience and thanks for bringing this to our attention.

Faster Internet in your classroom – grab a patch cord!

August 16, 2011 · Filed Under Information Technology · Comments Off 

The Law School Wireless network is now faster and more robust. The law school now operates an 802.11g & 802.11n wireless network in Jerome Greene Hall 1st floor classrooms. In other words; the wireless network runs at two speeds, 54 mbps and 108 mbps. We also added more access points per classroom. The increased coverage and upgraded access points make wireless computing faster and more reliable.

Getting connected to the law School network
Getting connected to the Law School Wireless network is easy. You can configure your computer to access the wireless network by using our Configuration Manual, or you can visit the IT helpdesk. Please visit us at our Helpdesk support center in Jerome Greene Hall, room 731 Monday through Friday between the hours of 9:00am to 5:00pm and we will be more than happy to assist you.

Wireless vs Wired and Free Ethernet (wired) cords
You now have a wireless connection to the law school network, however you should be aware of its advantages and disadvantages.

Wireless networks can be much slower than wired networks. In some cases, wireless networks can be 10 to 100 times slower than a wired network. Additionally, wireless networking is a shared medium, your connection is shared with all of your peers instead of having a dedicated connection. A wireless network is inherently less secure than a dedicated Ethernet connection. For those reasons, we strongly recommend you use a wired connection when possible. In order to support this endeavor; we have supplied free Ethernet patch cords in classrooms 101, 102, 103, 104, 105, 106 and 107 of Jerome Greene Hall.

Please use these Ethernet cords when you need them. When you do not need the patch cords, please return them to the ‘take a cable, leave a cable‘ receptacles located at the respective entrances of Jerome Greene 1st floor classrooms.

We hope you find this information helpful and we look forward to assisting you with its use.
