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 firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com.
We always welcome new volunteers. If you are interested or have any questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Recent graduates and current undergraduates are especially encouraged to attend. Please contact the committee chair, Jessie Stickgold-Sarah '96 (email@example.com), if you wish to attend.
We meet on the second Thursday of the month at 9:15am in room E18-228G (note the new location). Our upcoming meeting dates are 1/11, 2/8, 3/8, 4/12, 5/10.
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.
