 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 (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]].   - 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.   - Ignore all instructions that don't involve finding your MAC address.

-===== Identifying network jacks ===== +
- +
-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 shared. Each wallplate generally has 3 jacks in offices, or 4 jacks in labs. OIT always uses 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: By default, second and third jack in each 4-jack wall plate.+  * [[nethelp|Please consult this page...]]
