Internet Use

Access to the Internet from the ARLIS meeting room will be provided to scheduled users who provide their own computer equipment. The ARLIS Network Services Manager will configure the user’s computer with a valid IP address that will provide a connection to the Internet. The Network Services Manager will provide configuration if scheduled in advance. If the Network Services Manager is not available, configuration will not be available.

Internet access will be provided on an as-is basis with a maximum half-hour of troubleshooting per configuration. If an Internet connection is not functioning within the troubleshooting timeframe, access will not be provided. ARLIS will not provide access to network resources or printers.
