Information Technology Committee

The AILG IT Committee collaborates with MIT’s IS&T department on a variety of technical projects for the FSILG community, including the following:

  • Providing fiber optic Internet connections to FSILG houses.
  • Providing wireless networks within FSILG houses.
  • Providing VOIP telephony to FSILG houses.
  • Coordinating infrastructure updates and support with MIT’s IS&T department.
  • Maintaining the AILG mailing lists, such as ailg-it@mit.edu and mitailg-discuss@mit.edu.

We always welcome new volunteers. If you are interested or have any questions, please email ailg-it@mit.edu. Recent graduates and current undergraduates are especially encouraged to attend.

We meet monthly on a Thursday morning at 9:15am in the FCI Offices, room W20-020a. Our Spring 2017 meeting dates are January 19, February 23, March 30, April 27, and June 1.

The current chair of the AILG IT committee is David Lawrence ’14 (dlaw@mit.edu).

FSILG Network Information

If you have reached this page because you are seeking help with your FSILG network, please refer to the IS&T knowledge base.

All houses have signed the Network Management Program Agreement specifying the division of responsibilities between MIT IS&T and the FSILG.

FSILGs are required to designate at least one current undergraduate member as their Network Contact. The Network Contact serves as liaison with MIT IS&T for troubleshooting network problems and provides access to network equipment when needed. As of March 2016, Network Contacts are designated using the FCI Contact List, which is accessed at http://fsilg.coop. If no one is designated as a Network Contact, the default person for this role is the undergraduate house manager.

The “Slice of MIT” blog has a nice post describing the new fiber optic Internet connections.
