Interwebz for all!


TeamInternet is a special interest group focussed on bringing a great internet experience into whitespace. In order to avoid endless mail and Thursday discussions, this special interest group will create a solution for everyone, if you are interested in joining, ping us.


After discussing multiple options, we decided to go with Dommel: fast access, cheap, no caps, no ports blocked. We went with the lower cost - lower speed option, with the idea that, if we want more, we can always upgrade.

Note: We are currently not using anything of the web- and mailservice below.

Connection details:

adsl-number 100987582393
news-pass: xxx

Advanced modem/router settings:

protocol: rfc 2684 (aka 1483) multi-protocol over atm (bridged or routed)
vpi/vci: 8/35
ipaddress: automatic/dhcp
encapsulation: llc
password: not needed

Register IP in the DHCP

  • Login to dhcp server: If you don't have access, put your pubkey on your user page on the wiki and notify somebody who has already access.
  • You need the MAC address of the device you want to add (Hint: ifconfig | ipconfig /all | ip -0 addr)
  • Config is in /etc/dnsmasq.conf
  • Add entry at:
# IP - Fixed IP's - Document on the wiki 'TeamInternet' page

UTP Cabling in the space

All Ethernet cables are (going to be) connected to the patch panel in our rack. Here you have a schematic of how our cables are numbered.

Network numbering in Whitespace

For the time being only the circled numbers are present. The double circled are present and effectively connected to the patch panel already. This is an ongoing process cables will probably be installed as needed.

The cable guy is connected to port 60 on the patch panel.
