High Speed Internet

ResNet offers high speed wired internet access in all residence halls. To connect your computer to a wired connection you first need to plug your Ethernet cable into the back of your device. Then plug the other end into the data jack of the faceplate in your room.

Wireless service is available in Campus View, Valley View, and Suites on Main. See our Campus Wireless page for more information and instructions.

Wireless routers and access points are NOT PERMITTED.

Network Printers

The easiest and most secure method of using your printer is with a USB printer cable. If you have a wireless or LAN capable printer that is "cloud ready", you may connect it to ResNet by registering the MAC address on the ResNet Media Device Portal. Once you have your printer registered and connected to ResNet, register your printer with a cloud service such as Google CloudPrint, HP ePrint, or Brother iPrint. Refer to your printer manufacturer's documentation or Google Cloud Print's Cloud-Ready Page for more information on these functions.

Media Devices

Most game consoles and media streaming devices are supported on the wireless and wired networks. Please use the ResNet Media Device Portal to self-register your device. You will need to include the MAC address of your device to complete the registration process. The MAC address can usually be found on the manufacturer label or in your device's settings. Below are instructions to find the MAC address for several common devices. Refer to your device manual or contact the ResNet Support Center for more information.

All media devices must be registered once per academic year.
