In order to preserve the health of the campus network, individuals are not allowed to connect personal routers or switches to their network port. This restriction includes personal wireless devices such as wireless routers, hubs, and switches (a.k.a. access points). While these devices are often desirable to individual users, use of such devices interferes with the health of the network and can cause large-scale network outages.
