Each network connection in the dormitories is assigned a fixed IP address and a fixed monthly quota of high-speed traffic. The contingent can be requested from your own connection at http://traffic.campus-company.eu . Only the data consumption (traffic) to the Internet is counted. Internal university traffic (except VPN connections) is not counted. If the high-speed quota is used up, your network connection will be throttled in bandwidth for the rest of the month. Further information on this bandwidth restriction can also be obtained from the URL above.
Only the IP address assigned to the apartment may be used. In case of misuse, the connection will inevitably be disconnected from the network. If you have used an incorrect IP address, you will have to wait until the next full hour for your connection to be reactivated. During the disconnection you will receive a message that no network cable is connected.
If you want to broadcast a WLAN network in your apartment, you will need a WLAN router.
IMPORTANT: WLAN repeater or WLAN access points unfortunately do not work here. A frequently used and inexpensive model is for example the TP-Link TL-WR841N.
Setting the IP address on a router:
NOTE: The configuration and menu structure varies greatly depending on the device. Therefore we cannot provide instructions for all devices.
Basically we recommend that you make the following settings on your router:
