Complete the following steps to connect to the wired network:
1. Activate Your Data Outlet
Request to have your data outlet activated at cando.net.cmu.edu
. You must be connected to the campus network or via VPN off-campus to access CANDO. IMPORTANT
: Outlet activation may take up to two business days.
2. Connect the Ethernet Cable
Once the outlet is active, connect your Ethernet cable to the Ethernet port in your computer; on the other end connect the Ethernet cable to the pass-through which plugs into the data outlet in the room. See the Residence Hall Connection Types page to determine if you need a pass-through. If your room does not require a pass-through, connect the Ethernet cable directly into the data outlet. See image.
Register your computer
following the onscreen instructions. Allow 30 minutes for the registration to take effect.
