@Tawny if you don’t connect to wifi, you’ll have to plug directly into Ethernet. As your workplace is a financial services company, I would say that they would definitely NOT like you to use an Ethernet connection! But you could probably connect to their “public” or “guest” wifi service without endangering security. Their Guest wifi network will be isolated from the wired network that the employees use, so it will not violate safety protocols from your IT department.
Oh, by the way, I was thinking of exactly the same thing—running a Bridge at work instead of at home—but I’m excited that it isn’t necessary! All you have to do is take one of your Sentinels to work and let it gather geodata from Sentinels it “sees”. You can take it home and let it dump its data to your Bridge. The data won’t get uploaded as quickly to the Archivists this way, but you’ll get credit for all the info the Sentinel gathers. And a Sentinel just sitting on the desk or in your pocket is a LOT easier way to geomine at work than risking your job by connecting a Bridge to a work network without permission!
