Students are responsible for purchasing and installing the Network Interface Card (if needed - most computers now have integrated network cards), connecting LAN to the PC and residence hall LAN jack, and configuring the PC Internet Connections. It is essential that your operating system and computer operate free of errors or malicious activity (spyware, virus infections, Trojans, worms, ect.) in order for the Ethernet connection to work properly. If you are experiencing problems with your computer or operating system, it is your responsibility to contact a computer store vendor for repair. It is recommended that you bring copies of your operating system and application software to campus for you to use during troubleshooting if necessary. The IT Help Desk is also available for assistance.
NOTE: Information Technology reserves the right to permanently or temporarily disconnect your ResNet access until any inappropriate, illegal actions, or issues have been resolved.
