University internet problem

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
So I've moved into halls around a week ago and I'm having an occasion problem with my internet

Each room has an Ethernet port in the wall, and once plugged in you need to login with your details. If I do that everything works fine. The problem comes when I add a wireless router

This is the router I'm using

http://www.belkin.com/IWCatProductPa...duct_Id=522110

I've got the router plugged directly into the wall using an Ethernet cable and I connect my laptop using the wireless. For some reason I occasionally get an error message when trying to connect to the internet



Uploaded with ImageShack.us

I've also noticed that I don't get redirected to the log in page every time I use the internet. Before I would have to log in after having closed my laptop. I don't know if that matters, but it's something that is different

So does anyone know how I can stop this from happening, or even what it means?

It only happens every now and again, but it's fairly annoying and I don't want to keep having to deal with this inconvenience

It's against University policy to bring a router. Well, its for me and plenty of other colleges.

Stab in the dark here
Cross at our uni routers were not allowed, you had to use a access point.
Try setting the router into AP mode see if that helps.

Also are you restricted to how many devices you are allowed to use on a mac address basis? (again from personal experience so i may be wrong!) we were only allowed the one mac address basic and had to pay for more if we wanted more.

You could be seeing a cached web page rather than a upto date one when it is working or you could be seeing lapses in their filtering

Edit :- also depending on how techy and geeky you are, you can set up a proxy between you and the ethernet in the wall. Theirfore you can have the router behind your proxy and they will never know

However this will most probley be against their TOS, but hey your a student in halls

your login probably expired and so its preventing from getting to the DNS servers. As |102| said it is most likely against university policy and the moment they pick up your wireless they could shutdown your ethernet all together

edit: it may also be that they could block the MAC address of the router from the university network

Thanks for the replies

I'm going to try setting it up as an AP for now and see what happens

Also, how would I go about setting it up as a proxy?

They are allowed at my University.

They even sell them at the local computer store for us.

Please discontinue the discussion. Circumventing university network policies is against OCN tos. So a proxy is out of the question. As for an AP, that is something you should discuss with your schools network team. They should be providing the network infrastructure, not you.

My bad. I'm not 100% sure that it's against the universities policy, but I'll err on the side of caution with this one.

Feel free to close and trash this as I have no intention of breaking the ToS here at OCN
