Whereas Many Areas on campus, especially near the College of Engineering and the Central Library are becoming increasingly saturated with wireless networks; and
Whereas These networks are a huge asset to both students and professors; and
Whereas The availability of these networks are also a great way to sway technology-minded potential students; and
Whereas More professors, labs and other groups are setting up their own private wireless networks; and
Whereas These networks often cause problems and conflicts with the public wireless networks the University has setup.
Be It Further Resolved That The University give a group, such as Engineering Network Services or the Office of Information Technology, the Authority to regulate the wireless networks on campus by establishing naming standards, etc; and
Be It Further Resolved That This group be given the authority to designate channel numbers, id's, etc to the public wireless networks and distribute the remaining channels to private networks that apply for them; and
Be It Further Resolved That In areas that public wireless networks are available, this group post signs informing students and faculty of the availability of the network and the information necessary to connect to the network.
