Frequently Asked Questions
1. What is ASLAN?
ASLAN is LAN Party which aims to promote the Air-Stream community wireless and lanning in the northern suburbs.
2. What do I need to bring to ASLAN?
You'll need your computer system, equipped with a network card (your modem is NOT your network card) and network cable (5 meters minimum). We'll provide the tables, chairs, power and necessary network hardware. We can't always promise more than one power point per lanner so if you need more be sure to bring a power board. We also recommend you bring headphones instead of speakers. If using speakers understand that ASLan admins may direct you to turn your speakers down so that you will not take away from fellow ASLanners having a good time.
