-To register a computer for use on the Physics network, ​follow these steps:+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]].
  
-  - 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]]. +<​note>​ 
-  ​Scroll past OIT's instructions ​on registering your computer, and follow steps in the section on DHCP Ethernet Configuration. +Only full members ​of Physics & Astronomy ​can register devices directly in MyPhysIn general, only University-owned (not personal) devices are allowed ​on the wired network.
-  - Register your computer for the Physics network using our online [[http://​www.physics.umn.edu/​resources/​myphys/​network/|Network Registration Tool]]+
  
-===== Identifying ​network ​jacks =====+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:
  
-The network ​jacks in Tate Lab are separate from phone jacksBy default ​//most// network ​jacks are active ​for use.+  - First, find the network ​hardware (MAC) address of your computerOIT 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.
  
-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: +<note warning> 
-  * faculty, staff and postdoc offices: second and third jacks in each wall plate, ie AB, AC, AE, AF (and AH, AI, AK, AL if present) +  * **Having trouble?** 
-  * graduate student offices: second jack in each wall plate, ie AB AE AH AK AN AQ AT AW +  * **Need extra ethernet jacks activated?​** 
-  * labs: TBD+  * [[nethelp|Please consult this page...]]
