Most MIT Fraternity, Sorority and Independent Living Group houses are directly connected to the MIT network with fiber connections either provided by MIT's fiber plant or by Lightower networks. MIT provides the network connection to the house as well as equipment for the house network border. This includes an MIT switch and a fiber interface device. IS&T maintains both the switch and fiber interface for FSILGs.
|DO NOT power off the MIT switch or touch/disconnect the cables connected to this device. If you need bring this device down for ANY reason, please get in touch with firstname.lastname@example.org in advance.|
Connection to MITnet is 1Gbps direct fiber.
As of Fall 2014, the wireless network in all on and off campus FSILGs is provided and maintained by IS&T to be the same level of service as on campus dorms, academic and administrative buildings. For more information on the MIT wireless networks, please visit: The Wireless Networks at MIT
