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 Cat
5 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
If you have more than one device to connect, buy a router and
bring it with you. Plug the router into the provided Ethernet jack,
then plug your devices into the router. If you bring a wireless
access point/router, disable the Wi-Fi capabilities.
