Users are permitted to register two (2) devices (router, game system, tiVo, or an additional computer) to their NetID. Each device is identified by a physical (MAC) address which is unique to that device. ResNet allows routers in residence halls. If the router has wireless capabilities, the wireless radio on the router MUST BE TURNED OFF. These devices can cause networking issues for other residents, and are a violation of the user agreement that you digitally sign when registering.

Step 1

To register your router, netbook, laptop or desktop computer, connect your Ethernet cable to both the port on the wall and your device.

To register your video game console, DVR, video streaming device or any other device that you cannot access a web browser from, go to the manual registration page.

Step 2

Once your computer shows a connection, open your web browser and navigate to any page. This will automatically redirect you to our registration page.

Step 3

Sign in with your NetID and password then complete the registration steps.

Step 4

Make sure you have a working antivirus client that receives updates. If you do not already have one, please install the free Antivirus Software provided by the University.
