Hmm, we (TSG at DCS) would like some more information. As far as we know all
the wireless in RSISE,DCS,Ian Ross,Engineering (ANUNorth wireless network)
works fine. (we (Bob and I) use it all the time, as do many staff and we
assume students also (going by hte number registered, and looking at some of
the traffic on the network)

If there is some problem witht he service we would like to know about it,
your email does not provide any details of what specific problems there
are/could be.

Admittedly we use PPTP based VPNs which require you to register and then
establish to use the service, this is for security purposes.

	See You
