In order to connect to Wireless ResNet, you will need a Wireless PC/USB Card or other 802.11a/b compliant Device. The installation of your Wireless adapter should already have been completed. If your adapter was not installed by the manufacturer, then you should follow the instructions that were bundled with your device. ResNet support does not install Network Cards inside the computer. If you need further assistance from outside the University you can try an outside vendor.
SIMPLE SET UP:
PLUG IN MACHINE and RUN BROWSER…You will see the Network Registration Page:
