    hye there...

    i'm living in a campus and my campus provide wireless internet connection for the residents..

    but recently, the connection was always limited and no connectivity. But the problems here is tht it only happens in the block that i;m currently living but not in other blocks...

    so my questions are :-

    1- is it possible for students here to hack the bandwith (eg. increasing their block bandwith by stealing others?)
    2- if this thing really happens are there any ways that we could do to counter it?
    3- or are there any possibilities for the limited and no connectivity that my block has experienced for this few weeks?
    4- if the block has a high rate of download rate...is it possible to be one of the causes that make our wireless connection went down?

    thanks :)

    your answers are really2 appreciated.

    if you're having these issues, you need to take it to your school's tech department. this is a screwup they need to fix.

    Sounds to me like maybe a network infrastructure issue, like a damaged cable or malfunctioning router. Like Auslander said, alert the tech dept.
