== Wireless networks ==
 
=== Free Open Unsecure Wifi ===
 
Noisebridge generally has two or more unencrypted open wifi access points available for your use. If you can see the "noisebridge-a" network, congratulations, you have an 802.11a-compatible card and should use this network as it is better faster and stronger than the others. If you cannot see noisebridge-a, either it is not working or you do not have an 802.11a card. You probably have an 802.11g card. Hopefully you can see the "noisebridge" network, which is the one you should use in that case. Like any public network, you should regard noisebridge's as [[Visitor_advice#Hostile_network|potentially hostile]] and take appropriate precautions.
 
 
 
The following networks are active at 2169 now:
 
* '''noisebridge''' - No encryption, NATted via the Sonic.net and Monkeybrains links, 802.11bg
 
* '''noisebridge-a''' - No encryption, NATted via the Sonic.net and Monkeybrains links, 802.11a
 
* '''noisebridge-tor''' - No encryption, all traffic transparently proxied through tor.
 
 
 
=== Free Encrypted Unsecure Wifi ===
 
There are sometimes "secure" or encrypted wireless networks running at Noisebridge for research purposes. Please do not assume that these networks are in any way safer than an open network is; they are not. 
 
 
 
Encrypted wireless only means that anything transmitted between your laptop and the Wifi access point is encrypted. '''This does not guarantee security or privacy at all.''' Someone malicious could simply sit in between the "internet" and the Wifi access point and sniff all of your traffic after the access point unencrypts it, or they can simply figure out how the encryption functions and sit in on what your transmitting, or you use an encryption method that is already broken. In any case, '''using an encrypted Wifi network does not provide any useful security benefits at Noisebridge.'''
 
  
NOTE: the above statement is only partially true.  No technology 'guarantees' security or privacy.  Using the encrypted wifi network at Noisebridge doesn't give you more security since the shared secret is widely known and the space is not secure. But WPA2 is a useful technology in general, and it's not practical to brute force if the [http://wifinetnews.com/archives/2003/11/weakness_in_passphrase_choice_in_wpa_interface.html key is longer than 13 random characters]. By comparison, people who use unencrypted wireless are subject to [http://www.ethicalhacker.net/content/view/182/1/ trivially easy packet sniffing over the wire]. -- [[User:wsargent]]
+
The wifi and internet provided is for public use. Like any public network, you should regard Noisebridge's as [[Visitor_advice#Hostile_network|potentially hostile]] and take appropriate precautions. In order to not give the impression of providing false security, Noisebridge does not run any encrypted wifi networks.
  
In most cases you may encounter more problems trying to get "online" through one of the encrypted networks than using one of the open ones.
+
The following wireless networks (SSIDs) are active:
 +
* '''Noisebridge Cap'''
 +
** No password
 +
** 802.11g/n/ac 2.4 and 5 gHz
 +
** This is a temporary SSID set up for use during the move until the long term equipment is set up.
  
A few members of the space have gone out of their way to make the internet run as smooth as possible, part of that is disabling these so called secure networks [where do we call this "secure"?] to give room for the legitimate [citation needed] open ones that work a whole lot better [citation needed].
 
  
== DNS ==
+
== Wired network ==
 +
There are drops throughout the space. They are labeled with the corresponding number on the patch panel. Please don't destroy them (lol).
  
Dynamic DNS is provided by the nat machine for DHCP clients on 172.30.0.30/22.  Resolution of machines with static addresses is done by ipv4 or ipv6 mDNS and dynamic DNS entries on the nat machine from the DHCP service.
+
== Local Network Address Information ==
 +
DHCP is offered automatically on the network. Currently the IP range is as follows:
  
== Development ==

== DSL Circuit ==
 
 
There is a Sonic.net Fusion ADSL2+ DSL connection in the building.  The physical circuit comes in from the MPOE in the basement and runs across the roof of the basement and up the side of the building into the DJ booth (Tea Room).  The CPE is a Motorola 2210 ADSL2+ and is just outside the Tea Room on the floor.  The admin password is the serial number, written on the bottom. 
 
  
The addressing configuration is a little unusual. It's 75.101.62.0/24 and we've been allocated a /29 within that block: 75.101.62.88 - 75.101.62.95.  Note that we get to use all 8 addresses; the broadcast and network address are 75.101.62.255 and 75.101.62.0 respectively.  The gateway is 75.101.62.1.

=== Monkeybrains Wireless Link ===
 +
We have a point-to-point wireless link to Monkeybrains on the roof, it's a microwave dish on the roof at the front of the building.
  
The default CPE settings are not correct for our circuit configuration. From a factory reset, do the following to configure the CPE:

=== IPv6 ===
 
 
 
We have IPv6 support on the DSL circuit via a tunnel provided by sonic.net.  Some details on how to get the OpenBSD-based flashrd distribution on the routers to tunnel correctly can be found on the [[Flashrd]] page.
 
 
 
Note that using IPv6 in some situations can result in people knowing what model of computer you have and the network card's serial number, because of the way IPv6 stateless address configuration works.  If this is a concern, tell your computer not to use IPv6.  Ask around Noisebridge if you need help or want more details.
 
 
 
==== 2001:5a8:4:5630::/60 ====
 
 
 
This is the IPv6 subnet assigned to us by sonic.  We only use the bottom /64 of this /60 so automatic address configuration works right; the other 15/16s of the address space are intentionally wasted.  r00ter hands out IPv6 router advertisements for this subnet directly.  They're directly routable, but unsolicited incoming traffic is blocked by the firewall to protect the users.  This means you can't run an IPv6 server on our IPv6 subnet, but you can connect to other machines on the IPv6 Internet just fine.  If you really need to run an IPv6 server for some reason, consider using Teredo.

=== Dial Backup ===
 
  
There is a modem connected to 415 800 6786 which you can call to talk to an mgetty process on the ops machine. This may be handy if the upstream Internet connections aren't working or you locked yourself out by accident. Please don't dial out on the modem, it costs money.  Inbound calls on that circuit are free.

+
=== IPv6 ===
 +
We would like to setup IPv6, some day.
  
The modem has its remote access feature enabled.  Read the manual for details.
+
== Machine Rack ==
 +
There are two racks in the space, the main one on the first floor near the rolling door, and the secondary one on the second floor directly above the main one. They are small and up high to discourage people from messing with them or installing things in them. The internet works, please leave the boxes alone.
  
== IP PDU ==
+
===Can I install/setup boxes on Noisebridge's network?===
 +
====Short answer====
 +
'''No.'''
  
There is an IP PDU (model "IP 9258") at 172.30.0.7 which can be used to power cycle some of the devices in Susan the Rack.
+
====Long answer====
 +
Noisebridge is here to provide infrastructure for creative projects. We're really good at some things. One thing we suck at is administrating boxes setup on our network. They eat power, internet, the attention span of volunteers, and people who set them up generally are bad at communicating later on down the line when something breaks or a machine magically appears.
  
To change the state of the power ports, you'll need to telnet in and run "setpower=11000000". Each index represents a port, "1" is on and "0" is off.  Port 1 sometimes doesn't turn on unless you use the web interface, and it might take a couple requests.  Just keep clicking the apply button until it looks like power has been applied.
+
Noisebridge network infrastructure policy is as such:
 
+
* Critical infrastructure machines (like our access control system): Low power ok!
Changing some settings on the IP 9258 in the web interface may result in the power being cycled on some of the ports.  Don't change settings unless you're prepared to deal with machines spontaneously resetting.
+
* Machines for classes that cannot be hosted on the internet: Low power ok!
 
+
* Personal machines: NO!

Network Troubleshooting

Are you having issues with the internet or local network? Check out the Network Troubleshooting page for more information on what you can do to make things better or possibly seek help.

Disclaimer

Please note that Noisebridge does not guarantee or provide a perfect secure experience in the space. Just like anywhere else in the world you're held responsible for your own safety and wellbeing. This also includes content you receive or transmit or provide through any mediums, such as through pen and paper, sound waves or any networks wired or wireless functioning in the space. Noisebridge is a volunteer run and operated space that provides you with infrastructure, which you use at your own risk.

Free Public Wireless Networks

Noisebridge has two open wifi networks available for your use. In most cases if you connect to the network Noisebridge your laptop/phone/device will have the best luck getting crystal clear wifi and roam between radio channels according to which provides the most reliable and fastest connection.

The wifi and internet provided is for public use. Like any public network, you should regard Noisebridge's as potentially hostile and take appropriate precautions. In order to not give the impression of providing false security, Noisebridge does not run any encrypted wifi networks.

The following wireless networks (SSIDs) are active:

  • Noisebridge Cap
    • No password
    • 802.11g/n/ac 2.4 and 5 gHz

Wired network

There are drops throughout the space. They are labeled with the corresponding number on the patch panel. Please don't destroy them (lol).

  • IP Range: 10.21.0.1-10.21.1.254
  • Gateway: 10.21.0.1
  • Subnet: 255.255.254.0 (a "slash" /23)
  • DNS: 10.21.0.1, 1.1.1.1

Network Devices & Services


Uplinks

Monkeybrains Wireless Link

We have a point-to-point wireless link to Monkeybrains on the roof, it's a microwave dish on the roof at the front of the building.

I want to help!

Noisebridge is run by volunteers, you're welcome to help but should get to know those helping first before touching/hacking the network gear. Try introducing yourself on the #rack channel in the Noisebridge Slack.

Router

Biketrailer is our humble router. It is an Ubiquiti Edgerouter (ER-4) box running EdgeOS, a fork of Vyatta (a Linux-based router distribution).

The machines currently provides

  * NAT
  * DHCPD
  * DNS (dnsmasq) - local TLD and recursive proxy

Access is via SSH with keys and a https web interface.

IPv6

We would like to setup IPv6, some day.

Machine Rack

There are two racks in the space, the main one on the first floor near the rolling door, and the secondary one on the second floor directly above the main one. They are small and up high to discourage people from messing with them or installing things in them. The internet works, please leave the boxes alone.

Can I install/setup boxes on Noisebridge's network?

Short answer

No.

Long answer

Noisebridge is here to provide infrastructure for creative projects. We're really good at some things. One thing we suck at is administrating boxes setup on our network. They eat power, internet, the attention span of volunteers, and people who set them up generally are bad at communicating later on down the line when something breaks or a machine magically appears.

Noisebridge network infrastructure policy is as such:

  • Critical infrastructure machines (like our access control system): Low power ok!
  • Machines for classes that cannot be hosted on the internet: Low power ok!
  • Personal machines: NO!
  • High power machines: NO!
  • Bitcoin miners: NO!
  • Torrent boxes: NO!
  • Everything else: NO!

Please discuss any proposed installations in #Rack, but in general, please don't host your box at Noisebridge. We can't afford it. Thanks for understanding.

Rack setup

This is currently in flux and will be updated once things are more finalized.
