ITSS does not place limitations on the types of devices you may use on our network, nor do we restrict traffic by type. This means you are free to game, legally stream TV shows, etc. Routers and other networking devices are the major exception to the restriction rule. Because of the disruptions they cause, personal wired or wireless routers are not allowed on the University's network.
