Connecting to the Wired Network
Whenever possible, we recommend using a wireless connection to reduce our overall energy consumption. If you need to use a wired connection, wired outlets are available in residence halls and other campus buildings.
You will need the following:
- Ethernet cable long enough to reach from your computer to the data outlet in your room.
- Pass-through - This adapter is needed in some residence halls. Pass-throughs can be purchased at the Computer Sales area of the University Store. To determine if your residence hall requires a pass-through see the Residence Hall list.
To connect visit the FirstConnect site at www.cmu.edu/computing/firstconnect/.
