You will require an RJ-45 cable to connect to the network – You can obtain this cable from Housing Desk in Lobby of Mary Keyes Residence. Data Jacks are usually marked as D1, D2, D3 etc. Once you have plugged in the RJ-45 cable to the correct port, please open a browser window and complete the Network Registration instructions that appear. When you have completed this, you will be asked to restart your computer. If you are not automatically redirected to the “NetReg” web page, or have difficulty registering, the following instructions may assist you.
