2008 Spring Network Registration Requirement

To avoid any interruption to your ResNet connection, make sure that you have re-registered since March 24th, 2008. If you recently lost your connection to the Internet, please re-register your connection by clicking “Register Connection” above. Those who have registered after March 24th, 2008 will experience no loss of connection to the Internet.

You need to register from your on-campus residence. You will need to register BOTH your wired AND wireless connections separately. The registration process will include a security scan of your computer to make sure that it is protected from the most common Internet viruses.

Network devices that we have helped you register (access points, game consoles, etc) do NOT need to be re-registered until July.

For any questions or concerns, please contact ResNet.
