If you own a laptop computer, you can request an authorization to connect it to the (wired) LAN of the Department of Electronics and Information (DEI). This allows connecting to all the online resources of the DEI and to the internet (including the possibility to access and download non-free scientific papers for which the DEI has a subscription). You have to ask the Teacher responsible for your Project, who will have to follow [http://intranet.dei.polimi.it/sir/prese.php this procedure].
In AIRLab you have free connection both wired and WI-FI.
Please note that you will have to specify the MAC (physical) address of your network interface card. This is done in this way:
* Linux: run the command '''ifconfig''' from a command prompt (shell screen). This command describes to you the physical network cards that your PC includes. The main one is usually called eth0: on the right of this name you will find (among other things) something like "HWaddr 00:11:22:aa:bb:cc". The 6 hexadecimal numbers separated by ":" are the MAC address.
* MAC OS X: see the procedure for Linux; the main network card here is usually called "en0".
* Windows: similar to the procedure for Linux, but using the command '''ipconfig/all''' instead of "ifconfig".

This page contains the things you need to know and do to be allowed to work in the AIRLab. It is especially targeted to students.

HOW TO become a registered user of AIRWiki

To become one of the registered users, you must request a user account for the AIRWiki. To do that, you can ask your Advisor or co-Advisor (the procedure to create a new user is described at the bottom of this page). If you need more information, send an email to eynard (at) elet (dot) polimi (dot) it.

If you are a student beginning her/his work within the AIRLab, please note that you must be a registered user before you can even enter the Lab. You must also be aware that anything you put into the public layer of AIRWiki will be published on the internet and visible by all the world. Always keep in mind the warnings!

HOW TO get the authorization to access the Lab

Note: renewal for guests is not done through this procedure. The guest should go instead to Ms Laura Caldirola and start the procedure.

You cannot access the AIRLab without being authorized. You can get the authorization by following these steps:

  1. Read carefully the Safety norms and the AIRLab rules. Those documents are written in Italian: if you aren't able to read them, ask your Advisor.
  2. Become a registered AIRWiki user (see how at the bottom of this page). This also creates an empty personal page for you (you can reach it from here).
  3. Fill in your user page with your personal data and photo (read here how).
  4. Set up an AIRWiki page for your project you will be working on, if it does not exist yet (directions for that are here).
  5. Send an e-mail to Ms Laura Caldirola laura.caldirola@polimi.it requesting the access to AIRLab, and specifying your advisor's name.
  6. Send an e-mail to andrea.bonarini@polimi.it declaring that you have read the safety norms and the AIRLab rules.
  7. Receive your badge for access to the AIRLab by Fausto Berton (DEIB, ground floor). He will send you an e-mail message to ask you to go to his office to get the badge. If you do not receive this message within three days, please contact him directly.

It's done. Now, you are an authorized AIRLab student. Your badge should open the AIRLab doors. Hooray!

REMEMBER: to enter there you declared to follow the rules, and in particular to keep a proper behavior, be responsible and ... enjoy the AIRLab!

HOW TO connect your laptop to the Internet

In AIRLab you have free connection both wired and WI-FI.

HOW TO create a new AIRWiki user

Sysop users (sysop users are these; if you are curious about what being a sysop means, read here) can create new AIRWiki users. This is necessary, for instance, to introduce a student to the AIRLab. Provided that you are a Sysop, to create a new AIRWiki user account you must:

  • log in to the AIRWiki
  • go to the login/create account page
  • click on "create new account"
  • fill in the data of the new user (the username should comply with AIRWiki's convention of "NameSurname").

This procedure also creates the personal page for the new user, but 'does not' fill in such page. The new user will have to fill it in by herself (see here to learn how).
