Registering Your Computer

You must register your personal computer, router, gaming or media device before connecting to OpenPort or ResNet.

Registering Your Computer or Router

If you use a router, register the router as a computer, restart your computer and then connect any additional computers or gaming consoles to the router without registering them.

Register your computer or router if you are connecting your computer to the wall port, or if you are using a router to connect multiple devices.

  1. Determine if you are connecting your computer directly to the port on the wall or if you are connecting a router:
    • If you are connecting your computer directly, connect your computer to the Ethernet port on the wall using an Ethernet cable.
    • If you are using a router, connect your personal Router/Gateway to the Ethernet port on the wall using an Ethernet cable, following the instructions provided by the router/gateway manufacturer. Connect your computer (and no other devices at this time) to the router/gateway following the instructions provided by the router/gateway manufacturer.
  2. Open a Web browser.  You should automatically be directed to the ResNet Network page. If not, direct your browser to http://128.205.250.6/registration.
  3. Agree to the terms and conditions of use.
  4. Select Register Your Computer or a Router.
  5. Enter your UBITName and password. Click Continue.
  6. Wait while the network connection is established.  You should receive a notification message when this is complete.
  7. Click OK. Restart your computer.
  8. If you are using a router, connect other devices to your router/gateway, including computers or gaming consoles, following the instructions provided by the Router/Gateway manufacturer. Do not register the devices you plug in to your registered router.
