Network Questions? Let’s Hear Them!

We have quite a few projects this summer . . . wireless and the new network among them. If you have questions about wireless at your school or the new network, please add a comment here. When you do, the comments are directed to me so I can post both the question and answer at the same time. Thanks in advance to everyone who adds a comment.

Here are a couple of the questions I’ve encountered so far:

Will I still have my H drive? Yes, you’ll still have your H drive and all of your folders will be there.

Will I have to change my password all the time? No, once you change it on your first login, you’re set, but it will have to confirm to the requirements.

Do I need to save every email I receive? No, you don’t need to save email unless you’d like quick access to the message. Say a parent calls and you’d like to remember what the two of you had discussed via email . . . a saved message and a search will give you quick access. Do you need to save it for posterity? Nope.

Will I have wireless in my classroom? This first round will provide pretty good coverage, but won’t cover every corner of every building. Once we turn things on and monitor traffic, we will identify those locations where we aren’t getting the type of access we need.

  1. If we want to save old email- is there a way to do it?

  2. Yes, you can save them much like you save a file. If it’s a single message, you can open it >> go to File >> go to Save As. A new window opens and you’ll have two boxes to check before saving: Save File As & Current Directory. Just be sure to give the file a name that makes sense for you AND select where you’d like to save it. Click Save.

    If it’s multiple files or a whole folder, select them all using SHIFT + click or CTRL + click >> go to File >> go to Save As. A new window opens and you’ll have two boxes to check before saving: Save File As & Current Directory. In this case, you might want to create a new folder for your messages by selecting Browse >> Make a New Folder.

  3. How fast is the connection?
