WiFi Use Policy for Resnet
As you are aware CC has recently implemented a policy of registering and binding your residential computer's network hardware address to the IP number that your computer uses. We emphasize that this measure is to ensure that no one abuses your residential network resources.
In this connection, it is seen that many residents are using mis-configured Wireless Access Points/Wireless Routers at home. Wireless Access Points have to be configured very carefully in order to prevent people in your neighborhood and possible rogue users from using the network addresses and resources alloted to you.
Hence, the following policy must be adhered to in order to prevent misuse and implement proper network security:
PLEASE ASK THE APPROPRIATE VENDOR TO CONFIGURE YOUR Wireless Access Points/Wireless Routers AT THE TIME OF INSTALLATION. THE ABOVE FEATURES MAY ALSO BE IMPLEMENTED ON WiFi EQUIPMENT ALREADY DEPLOYED IN THE RESIDENTIAL NETWORK.
WiFi hardware of various makes/brands has been deployed in resnet. It is not feasible for CC to provide any hardware assistance in this matter.
Access points not configured properly will not be able to connect to the Institute network.
In view of the IT laws in force, that require users to take responsibility for their own network use, we are constrained to implement these features on the IITB network.
