    Overview

    Home networks were relatively simple several years ago, perhaps nothing more than a wireless access point and a computer or two used to surf the Internet or play games online. However, home networks have become increasingly complex. Not only are we connecting more devices to our home networks, but we are doing more things with them. In this edition we will cover some basic steps to creating a more secure home network.

    Starting next week, the http://gmail.brown.edu login page will look and function like a consumer (non-Brown) Google login page. What does this mean for us? Instead of logging in with just the beginning of our Brown email address (e.g., josiah_carberry), we will have to type the whole email address (e.g., josiah_carberry@brown.edu).
