TRUAX Network Interface Specifics for WISC-T2000

Connection to the Internet is via an RF link between the hanger/lab at TRUAX and the Space Science and Engineering Center (SSEC) building on campus. Solectek from San Diego, California is supplying a 4 mb wireless bridge and is an extension of the SSEC network. SSEC's connection to the Internet is via the UW campus network at rates up to 45 Mbits/Sec.

Please use the following information in preparation for connecting to the network at TRUAX.


The network wiring is 10BaseT with Rj45 connectors. SSEC will supply cables to your computer.
