Network Precautions

What issues should I be aware of when using GCC’s wireless network?

There are several things to keep in mind when using a wireless network connection. The first is that it is a shared system. It is not recommended to use the wireless network to download streaming video or audio feeds. Another potential problem with wireless networks is radio frequency interference. The radio frequency range used by the wireless network is becoming very crowded with all types of devices (in addition to networking devices) and raises the very real possibility of harmful interference affecting wireless services. There are also environmental considerations such as building composition and even weather than can affect wireless functionality.
