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 typically meet on the second Thursday of the month at 9:15am in room E18-228G (note the new location). We meet on the following dates December 13, 2018, and in 2019 on February 7, March 14, and May 9. For April 11, 2019, we will meet in Twenty Chimneys in the Student Center, right after the AILG Plenary.
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.
