Routers and Wireless Access Points
Personal Routers (of any type):
Personal routers of any type are prohibited on the Middlebury Campus network.
According to the handbook :
Home networking devices, such as DSL or cable-modem devices, home routers, wireless routers and wireless access points, etc., can cause serious disruption of campus network services. The default, "out of the box" configurations of many of these are such that, if connected directly into the campus network, they can disable network access for an entire subnet. No such device may be connected to the campus network without prior consultation and approval of LIS network management staff. Discovery of unauthorized devices may result in immediate disconnection of network service. If a device is found to be disrupting network services, it will immediately be disconnected from the network while LIS staff members attempt to contact the owner.
