ResNet - Using the MyResNet Tool

The MyResNet tool is an easy way to check what devices you have registered on ResNet, and submit a request to remove any devices you wish to unregister from ResNet.

The MyResNet tool can be found here: https://residents.housing.wisc.edu/resnet/tools/myresnet. It requires a user to log in with their NetID and Password.

Upon login, users will see a screen that will list each device that is registered to their NetID:

MyResNet Main Page

Finding More information about your device

To see more information about your device, click on the highlighted "Host Name" field (in the picture above, the host name is "n/a"). A new screen will appear with additional information about your device:

MyResNet - Additional Information

Removing a device from the ResNet Network

To remove a device from the network, check the "remove" box, and click on "delete registrations". A new window will pop up to confirm your selections:

MyResNet - Deletion Confirmation

Click "Submit" to finish the process. NOTE: This DOES NOT remove a registration instantaneously. This sends a request to ResNet, and the device should be unregistered within one business day.

Why Unregister?

Unregistering devices can be useful for the purpose of deleting accidental registrations, or if a user needs to register a device with no built-in internet browser (for example, a gaming device). In this case, the user should unregister their computer, and before re-registering, use option #3 to register their gaming console.

For more information on the registration process, please see ResNet Registration Procedure.
