Default I'm using a router in my dorm room, and I want to make sure I'm not disturbing anyone

I have a router connected to the only ethernet jack my dorm services give me. I connected the yellow port into the wall as the picture on the box suggests. I assuming it is the WAN port. Then I hook up my other devices from the router through more ethernet cables.

I have done anything else but make these simple lego connections.

The network is surprisingly fast on both computers, and I immediately thought "this is to good to be true."

I found out today that the dorm's keycard making system has gone down.
I'm really hoping I have nothing do to with this, or anything worse.

PS my school's network is Resnet

This is a forum for wood working routers.

I trust you take more time to read your exam papers.

PS. I doubt the two incidents are related.

If no one complains about the noise and sawdust, I'd say you have it made.

It probably won't make much of either if only plugged into an ethernet port......

Can you post a photo up of your workshop? Sounds like you've got it set up nicely.

Make sure you always are wearing hearing protection and safety glasses, with the proper prescription, so you can read the instructions and protocol that apply to your router. You should also always have an OSHA approved first aid kit and a large supply of Bandaids available in the unfortunate event you injure yourself or one or more of your dorm mates with your router. And remember, K.I.S.S.
