The undergraduate Computer Networks course has been restructured to provide more emphasis on
Wireless Local Area Networks.
The impact on the lectures is that some early material will be presented "out-of-order" to enable the students to get an early start on the programming assignments.

All the programming assignments were significantly revamped in B05 after Hurricane Katrina.
As a small token towards our awareness of the tragedies that have befallen the people of the U.S. Gulf Coast, all the programming assignments share a common theme of building software that could be seen in a context of providing technology assistance to disaster evacuees.
To keep the student programming effort reasonable for a seven week term, all the assignments except
Program 1 are to be completed by three-person teams.
Choosing team partners:
ALL three members MUST send an email to rek indicating that they agree to be a team by Monday, November 5th by 6 p.m.
Those students remaining as 'free agents' will be assigned to teams.
Each team must participate in a REQUIRED 30-minute office hour meeting to discuss their design report by 5 p.m. on Friday, November 9th.
