ResNet Registration of Computers and Mobile Devices (Not Routers)

This describes the process for registering a computer or other mobile device with ResNet using the ResNet registration page.

When a user or guest plugs a device into the ResNet network for the first time, they will automatically be directed to the ResNet registration page. Here they will be presented with a number of choices.

Only if a user plans to register a single computer (and no additional devices) should he or she choose this option.

If the user has other devices they wish to connect to Resnet they must register them first using the instructions found in
ResNet Registration of Devices Lacking a Built-In Browser (Game Consoles, TiVO, etc.).

ResNet Registration Page

If the user chooses to register their computer, they will be presented with this screen:

ResNet Computer Registration Page

Note: Guests and Conference Attendees should use option 3, Guest Registration, to register.

After the user fills out the form and hits "register", they should see the screen below. 


At this point, the computer will be assigned an IP address. This could take up to two minutes depending on the speed of the computer. Once this address has been assigned, the user is ready to connect to the internet!
