Frequently Asked Questions

What is ASLAN?

ASLAN is LAN Party which aims to promote the Air-Stream community wireless and lanning in the northern suburbs.

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). We'll provide the tables, chairs, power and necessary network hardware and network cable. 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.

What is the Uber Klasse premium package?

The Uber Klasse ticket is great value, costing $30, entitles you to the following bonuses

  • Double the desk space as the regular ticket to spread out, excellent for very large monitors
  • Two gigabit LAN ports. You could add another machine to the network at full gigabit speed
  • Reserved seating in the best seat locations
  • Direct access to the core switch
  • One "Pro Lanner Meal" food voucher
  • Your meal will also be hand delivered to your desk and your meal order will take priority

Is there parking at ASLAN?

Parking at Hillcrest Community Centre is in plentiful supply. You should have no problems as its all close to the venue.

Where can I buy food at ASLAN?

As of ASLAN #15, ASLAN is now a catered event. We have fresh pies, pasties and sausage rolls at all LANs and our resident chef "Jimmy" is always cooking up new tasty 'Pro Lanner Meals' to provide calories and nutrition to keep you lanning longer. Cold drinks are also available all day as well as occasional specials.

What else do I need to do before ASLAN?

  • Make sure you have allowed Windows to Update! Please visit www.windowsupdate.com.
  • Make sure you have an up to date anti-virus program. Make sure that your computer is also free of virii. Anyone found to be transmitting a virus over the ASLAN network will have the network access removed until the issue is rectified to the satisfaction of one of our admins.
  • Check your network settings are set to Automatic.

May I sell things at ASLAN?

Provided prior permission is sought then all things are possible. Permission is not required to pickup equipment that has already been agreed upon elsewhere.
