ResNet is the name of the campus network service which supplies internet access and basic cable television service to people living in the student housing facilities such as the Dorms, The Colleges, Orchard Park, Solano Park, and Primero Grove

The service within the dorms can be very slow because some people are constantly downloading music, movies and other "content" that takes up all (or most) of the bandwidth available.

[WWW]ResNet status

For about an hour the evening before the last day of finals in Winter 06, much of Cuarto was without internet except for sites in the ucdavis.edu domain, sending countless freshmen into a panic.

It seems that there was a major routing issue. Traceroutes to UCDavis were dieing in the first few hops from all majort ISPs I tested from. —RyanCastellucci

I was on the outside trying to get in to *.ucdavis.com domains, as was a friend of mine at Russell Park. Weird stuff, that. According to [WWW]http://status.ucdavis.edu:
Network Outage 03/22/06 17:45 - now
The campus is currently experiencing a Type 1 Outage affecting the entire campus.
 Data connections to the Internet are unavailable. NOC staff are working to resolve
 the problem; no current ETR.

The Problem, after the fact:
Network Outage 03/22/06 17:45 - 19:15
The campus experienced a Type 1 Outage affecting the entire campus. Data connections
 to the Internet were unavailable. NOC staff isolated the failure to DWDM equipment

2008-07-23 18:17:04   Is the cable television provided by Resnet:
1) Analog
2) Digital, but unencrypted (Clear QAM)
3) Digital, and encrypted?

Does it require a cable box? Can you use your own tuner? —IDoNotExist


2008-07-23 21:35:01   What happens to the signal from HD broadcast or cable feeds? Starting in February, there won't be any more non-HD broadcast feeds, and at least some of the channels carried by resnet are normally broadcast in HD. Are there any plans to upgrade the network? —IDoNotExist


2008-07-24 14:07:44   So are high resolution digital broadcasts downsampled to SD resolution for redistribution on resnet? —IDoNotExist
