Law School Ethernet Connections
For people who have ethernet cards for their laptops, the Law School has a number of connections available for use (if you don't have a working ethernet card and would like to buy or configure one, see ITS' help for new students. An ethernet card will provide high-speed access to the local network and the Internet (much faster than a modem).
As frequent wanderers of the Law School may have noticed, there are a number of what appear to be slightly odd-looking phone outlets scattered throughout the buildings. Most outlet faceplates have three jacks on them, numbered 1, 2, and 3. These are phone/ethernet outlets, and some of them are active, and some are not. As demand for ethernet access increases, Law ITC will activate more of them. Currently, all public active jacks are in the Library. Active jacks are as follows (and most/all should have green dots beside them to show they are active and available for use):
- 24 floor outlets in Library 1st floor reading room (Caplin). Jack #1 on each outlet is active.
- 12 floor outlets in Library 1st floor periodical room. Jack #1 on each outlet is active.
- 20 outlets along Library 2nd floor east wall, facing the JAG School. Jack #2 on each outlet is active.
- 16 outlets along Library 2nd floor west wall, overlooking Spies Garden/Law School central courtyard. Jack #1 on each outlet is active.
- 6 outlets on Library 2nd floor overlooking west side of Caplin reading room. Jacks #2 and #3 on each outlet are active.
