In the Walcott lounge, you can connect to Slugnet though the orange network cable in the spool or over wireless. There is also a 24 port switch in the control panel rack. This may be used but it is only 10 megabit. In the Goodale lounge, there is a 24 port switch in the Bemix rack and a white network cable by the Barco.
