The Student Village Network connection a.k.a Kyläverkko is provided by the IT Services of University of Turku. Here are few tips how to get your connection run smoothly.
The most preferable method for Internet access is a direct connection with an Ethernet cable from the network wall socket to computer and making sure that network settings are configured to obtain network addresses automatically. That’s it.
Now comes the wireless part. Wireless connection is always slower than a physical cable connection. This is due to many reasons but one main reason is the 2.4 GHz frequency band. At worst there might be 10 or more wireless networks from others. 2.4 GHz frequency band is problematic and it doesn’t help that there is only 3 non-overlapping channels. 2.4 GHz will get crowded and slow very soon not to mention how it affects the usability when wireless routers are configured on other than those 3 non-overlapping channels. The list goes on how bad 2.4 GHz really is but fortunately there is a better way: use 5 GHz frequency band instead! That is, if personal devices support 5 GHz.
When decision has been made to use WLAN, few things need to be taken into consideration. Kyläverkko is based on Ethernet technology. Therefore a wireless router is needed. ADSL/VDSL modems may work but because their burden to old telephone landlines, it is best not to use modems. When using a router, the Ethernet cable from network wall socket is connected to WAN or Internet labeled port. If connected to a LAN port the connection won’t work correctly. LAN ports are only meant to share Local Area Network to personal devices. Personal WLAN networks also need a strong password encrypted by WPA2 to keep unwanted users out.
If problems or questions (network related) arise feel free to ask. You can contact us by sending an email to email@example.com
