Another cause of Internet shutdowns is due to Internet routers. The university gives each student one port when they move into the dorm. However, as the number of electronic appliances requiring Internet service such as smart phones and PCs has increased students have begun to use their own routers. If students put their routers into a WAN port without being fully aware of the instructions, this can cause errors which could lead to re-directing to strange IP addresses, which in turn leads to a slow-down in connection speed and interruptions in service. Currently, the university recommends that students use switching hubs and they have put up notices in all the dormitory buildings to that effect.
Students should obey the rules posted on the university administration notices. Moreover, the university should not only post notices on the bulletin board, but it should also promote the issue by broadcasting the proper usage rules actively.
