To connect any device to the Physics network, you must abide by our network security policy. Please note that slightly different rules apply for personally-owned vs university-owned systems.
To register a computer for use on the Physics network, follow these steps:
You will be reminded via email to renew your registration on the web site once per year.
If you need a static address (available for university-owned devices only), 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. You should still configure your computer to use DHCP; our network will give it the assigned static address.
If you have special networking needs, Contact Us.
No registration is needed to use our wireless networks. Consult our page on wireless networking for more information.
