Students living in residence hall rooms and campus apartments
enjoy access to ResNet, UB's lightning-fast wired Ethernet
connection. Learn what you need, how to connect and how to
configure multiple devices.
Connecting wtih ResNet is 1,000 times faster than using a Wi-Fi
connection. Your connection is always strong, so you'll never worry
about a weak signal.
To connect to ResNet, you'll need to purchase your own Ethernet
cable. Cables should be 25 feet or longer, to allow for flexibility
in the positioning of furniture in your room. Each residence hall
room and campus apartment has one Ethernet port per occupant.
If you have more than one device to connect, you will want to
buy a router and bring it with you. You can plug the router into
the provided Ethernet jack, and then plug your devices into the
router. If you bring a wireless access point/router, please be sure
to disable the Wi-Fi capabilities.
