Networking Services maintains a wired network to provide connection to the internet from campus.
Wired connections require a device equipped with a network interface card (NIC) configured for DHCP, or documented static configuration and a CAT 5e or CAT 6 RJ-45 unshielded twisted pair (UTP) patch cable, and registration on the network (NetReg).
Only authorized devices are allowed on the network. Wired Ethernet connections are governed by policy. See IT Security Policies for current guidelines relating to authorized devices and acceptable use policies.
The following services are offered for wired Ethernet connections on campus:
- New activation – if you already have a network jack and need to have it activated.
- New drop – if you do not have a network jack in the location where you need service.
- Repair – if you have an activated jack that is not operating correctly.
If you have any questions or need additional information please contact the IT Help Desk.
