Clark’s wacky Wi-Fi

Clark College has spotty Wi-Fi and internet connection on campus. This quarter the internet connection to the classroom computers went out at least twice.

Bruce Elgort, Computer Technology Instructor said it is clear that having a good connection should be a normal part of daily business. “Reliable wireless access has become a “must have” feature of any establishment.” Elgort said. “Whether it’s a coffee shop, school buses, airport, restaurants, hotels etc. At Clark, where cellular is not available in most locations, having reliable Wi-Fi is a critical component to student success.”

 

 

 

The Indy asked students what their thoughts were about Clark’s Wi-Fi or if they’ve even been prevented from doing anything because of the sudden drops in internet connection.

“It could improve. Computers aren’t a problem, but on my phone YouTube just loads and loads.”

Dominic Frealey, Sophomore studying Psychology: 

“I feel like it’s pretty good most of the time, except in certain areas. It’s a pain to log back in. We should have cookies to keep us logged in.”

“I don’t like having to reconnect and enter my password every time. If I need to access Canvas, I have to go to the library.”

“[Today] the internet went down and we couldn’t make card transactions. I think culinary had the same problem, too.”
