Internet and Network connections
Tyndale House provides free access to the web and other online facilities. Our connection is often slow, and we have plans to install a 1G optical cable. You may use this connection for academic and non-commercial personal surfing or email, but not for radio or video streaming (ie internet radio or video) because this slows down the connection for everyone else, and because we are charged by the amount of data we download.
Wireless connection - free ticket from the Front Office
Wired connection - IP number from Librarian or IT staff
(you can connect yourself temporarily using the instructions below)
Online Backup - good internet services
Two wireless services are freely available through Tyndale House
Lapwing - requires an ID & Password each day.
- Members of the University can use their Raven ID and password
- Day Visitors can get a one-day ticket from the Front Office. Longer term users can be issued with a ticket of up to 3-months.
Every desk has a network cable. To connect yourself, do the following:In a PC: Click on Start: Control Panels: Network Connections: Local Area Connection: Properties:
- Highlight "Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4)" and click "Properties", then put in the numbers below:
In a Mac: Click on System Preferences: Network: Ethernet: Configure "Manually", then put in these numbers (cf. this video):
IP (use the number you have been give or use 184.108.40.206 or 220.127.116.11 temporarily till you have your own number)
If you use Outlook, Eudora or another mail program which downloads mail, you will need a local SMTP address.
If you use web mail such as Yahoo or GMail, you won't need this.
We no longer provide online backup because there are many good free services.
