Integration of the dormitory Fritz-Löffler-Straße 12 in the AG DSN network

Fritz-Löffler-Straße 12

Written by Jakob Müller, 2021-10-02.

In October, the dormitory Fritz-Löffler-Straße 12 will be integrated into the network of AG DSN. We welcome all residents and hope that we can further improve the quality of the network.

Those who have already had network access through the Studentenwerk in the past will continue to receive it free of charge. New tenants must become a member to receive network access.

During October, the installed floor switches will be replaced on all floors, as well as the network sockets. This should enable Gigabit access for all rooms. The conversion is always done floor by floor (per entrance).

For the conversion, the cables in the room (between network socket and end device) must also be replaced. Further details will follow. In addition, all end devices must be reconfigured so that the IP address is obtained automatically via DHCP and is no longer statically configured. This can be changed over as early as October 1 and must be done at the latest after the network socket has been replaced.

Experience has shown that minor problems occur when migrating approximately 500 residents to the AG DSN system. If your connection does not work as expected, contact our support team. We will be happy to help you!
