Wireless Internet access is provided throughout the campus via RESNET. In addition, it is also provided to resident students through wired ports in their residences. Access to RESNET is provided at no charge to faculty, staff, and students.
Requirements for RESNET:
RESNET access is self-activated. Simply connect your wireless device to RESNET or plug into your dorm/apartment room ethernet jack. Once you try to get online, you will be redirected to a login page that will ask you to insert your username and password. Click Download and install the application that appears if applicable (Bradford Persistant Agent).
After the Bradford Persistent Agent installs, it will scan your PC for compliance (Windows Updates, etc.). If the check passes, you will be allowed online right away. However, if you have issues, please check this guide for Windows computers.
Directions for joining ResNet on a MAC:
Connect your wireless device to RESNET or plug into your dorm/apartment room ethernet jack. Next you will need to retrieve the MAC address of your system. To do this, you first go to System Preferences, then you click on Network, Advanced, and finally Hardware.
Once you get to that screen, copy down the 12 digit MAC Address and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org or stop down to our Bogel Hall office and we will white list your machine onto the network.
