Rutgers Internet Question

Don't know if this has been asked before but is there free wi-fi at rutgers, or is it wired? I toured mattia and i saw ethernet cable, so is there both in the dorms or is it all wired? Also, are there any restrictions on internet access? The last thing I need is some gay bess preventing me from downloading from/visiting sites.

    There is a limit on d/u rates, I believe its 2 gigs download, and a gig upload. Something like that. If you go over, resnet suspends your internet for a week. It won't prevent normal surfing if that is all you do. It does prevent massive downloading. This however is not usually a problem as there is a DC++ hub on campus where you can find anything you really need. Movies, music, anything, its a great resource.
    About wireless, when you make a resnet and eden email account, you use that same username and password to log onto the free wi-fi. To be honest, I've found the coverage to very iffy and mostly concentrated around classrooms, but even then it can be weak. Id recommend just using the wired tap as they are pretty fast.

    Exactly how FAST is the wired internet at Rutgers? - Barr Hall at Busch Campus specifically.
