ResNet Registration Procedure

The following is an overview for registering devices using the ResNet registration system.

ResNet does not allow users to access the main ResNet page after they register their computer with ResNet. For this reason users should register their devices in this order:

  1. Routers
  2. Gaming consoles & other devices without a built-in browser
  3. Personal computers

Note: If your devices are plugged into a router, you only need to register the router, not the individual devices. The ResNet network only cares about network endpoints, not the individual traffic that is flowing through those endpoints. If you remove the router, you will have to re-register each device. 

For users attempting to connect their devices to ResNet for the first time there are several different procedures depending on the user and the type of device he or she is attempting to register.

Please see this document about devices that are incompatible with our wireless network.
