-To register a computer for use on the Physics Network, follow these steps:+
  
-  -Firstfind the network ​hardware address of your computer. You can find this using [[http://​www1.umn.edu/​adcs/​network/​hardwareaddress.html|these instructions from ADCS]]. +Unlike most other buildings on campus, the wired network ​jacks in the Physics-occupied areas of Physics & Nanotechnology are operated by Physics IT rather than the University.
-  - Using the hardware address, register your computer for the Physics ​network using our online [[http://​www.physics.umn.edu/​support/​networks/​tools/​|Network Registration Tool]]. +
-  ​Finally, configure your computer to obtain its address using DHCP. For help on how to do this, you can refer to the [[http://​www1.umn.edu/​adcs/​network/​|ADCS internet connection guide]]+
  
-You will be reminded via email to renew your registration ​on the web site once per year.+To connect any device ​to the Physics network, you must first register it using the directions below, and agree to abide by our [[:​computing:​policies:​network_connection|network security policy]].

 +<​note>​ 
 +Only full members of Physics & Astronomy can register devices directly in MyPhys. In general, only University-owned (not personal) devices are allowed on the wired network.

 +If you are a short-term visitor to Physics & Astronomy, please see our [[guests]] page. If you are based here from some other department, please check with your own IT group whether they have networking support set up with us.

 +To register a computer for use on the Physics network, follow these steps: 
 + 
 +  - First, find the network hardware (MAC) address of your computer. OIT has some [[http://​it.umn.edu/​services/​all/​data-network/​wired-network/​setup-guides/​index.htm| information on how to do this]]. 
 +  - Ignore all instructions that don't involve finding your MAC address. 
 +  - Register your computer for the Physics network using the MyPhys [[http://​www.physics.umn.edu/​resources/​myphys/​network/​|Network Registration Tool]]. **Note**: Only people registered in the Physics directory can use this tool.

 +===== Changing your network registrations ===== 
 +<box 40% red right|Important>​All systems in the School of Physics and Astronomy should use DHCP to configure their network address. You should never enter address information into your computer manually. 
 +</​box>​ 
 +You can use the network tools to list your currently registered network devices, change or remove them, or add additional ones.

-===== Static ​Addresses =====+===== Fixed Network ​Addresses =====
  
-If your computer needs static ​address, you should still register it for DHCP. You might need a static address for a server or other devices such as network printers.+If you need fixed address, you should still register it using the online tool. You might need a static address for a server or other devices such as network printers.
  
-In the registration tool, check the box to request a static address. We will register the hostname and assign an IP address for you. Configure ​your computer to use DHCP, and it will obtain ​the assigned ​static ​address.+In the registration tool, check the box to request a static address.
