To connect any device to the Physics network, you must abide by our network security policy.
Unlike most other buildings on campus, the wired network jacks in Tate Lab, and the Physics-occupied areas of Physics & Nanotechnology are operated by Physics IT rather than the University.
To register a computer for use on the Physics network, follow these steps:
The network jacks in Tate Lab are separate from phone jacks. By default most network jacks are active for use.
Phone and network jacks in Physics/Nanotechnology are common. Each wallplate generally has 3 jacks in offices, or 4 jacks in labs. OIT always use the first jack in a wallplate for phone service, although which wallplate will vary between rooms. We are using the following default rule to wire data jacks in PaN:
You can use the network tools to list your currently registered network devices, change or remove them, or add additional ones.
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.
