-To connect any device to the Physics network, you must abide by our [[:​computing:​policies:​network_connection|network security policy]].+
  
 +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.
 +
 +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.

 To register a computer for use on the Physics network, follow these steps: To register a computer for use on the Physics network, follow these steps:
  
-  - First, find the network hardware address of your computer. ​You can find this using [[http://www.oit.umn.edu/​network/​using/​setup/​index.html|these instructions from OIT]]. +  - 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.htminformation on how to do this]]
-  - Register your computer for the Physics network using our online ​[[http://​www.physics.umn.edu/​resources/​myphys/​network/​|Network Registration Tool]]. +  - Ignore all instructions that don't involve finding your MAC address
-  - Finally, configure your computer to obtain its address using DHCP. For help on how to do this, you can refer to the [[http://​www.oit.umn.edu/​network/​using/​setup/​index.html|OIT internet connection guide]]+  - 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.

-If you need a static ​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.+===== 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.

 +===== Fixed Network Addresses =====

 +If you need a 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. You should still configure your computer to use DHCP; our network will provide the assigned fixed address. In the registration tool, check the box to request a static address.
