Tomorrow: Wi-Fi Routers and You

New Tech? Need to know how to get connected? Grab your lunch and come join us in the Heritage Room in the DUC on December 6 from 12:00 to 1:00 p.m.

Our final Lunch and Learn of the calendar year will focus on how you connect all those amazing new devices you picked up on the Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales. Jake Gadaleta will be leading us on:

  • What is Wi-Fi and why should you care?
  • Do you even need a router? How can you tell?
  • Range considerations and making sure you select the right router for the job.
  • Upload and download speeds and why they do and don’t matter.
  • Fios vs. DSL vs. Cable vs. Satellite – what the differences are for ISP service providers
  • Point to point and bus topology and why that matters.
  • What to look for in capabilities and security features.
  • How much will it all cost you?

This brown bag lunch and learn is open to the whole campus. Please sign-up here so we have some idea of how many are coming.
