Frequently Asked Questions
What is ASLAN?
ASLAN is LAN Party which aims to promote the Air-Stream community wireless and lanning in the northern suburbs.
What do I need to bring to ASLAN?
You'll need your computer system, equipped with a network card (your modem is NOT your network card). We'll provide the tables, chairs, power and necessary network hardware and network cable. We can't always promise more than one power point per lanner so if you need more be sure to bring a power board. We also recommend you bring headphones instead of speakers. If using speakers understand that ASLAN admins may direct you to turn your speakers down so that you will not take away from fellow ASLanners having a good time.

Yes. Provided an admin knows about it. In this case, Chris Cichon (DrGeforce3) or a member of the server team should be apprised of the additional machine. Under no circumstances are private file servers permitted. This only applies to game servers, which must be located in the farm.

Parking in Mawson Lakes is in plentiful supply. You should have no problems as its all close to the venue.
What else do I need to do before ASLAN?

Make sure you have an up to date anti-virus program. Make sure that your computer is also free of virii. Anyone found to be transmitting a virus over the ASLAN network will have the network access removed until the issue is rectified to the satisfaction of one of our admins.
Check your network settings are set to Automatic.
