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.
Complete the following steps to connect to the wired network:
1. Activate Your Data Outlet
Follow these instructions to request data outlet activation at cando.net.cmu.edu. To access CANDO from off campus, use a VPN connection. 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 into the data outlet.
RESIDENCE HALLS: Check the Residence Hall Connection Types page to determine if you need a pass-through; see image.
Register your computer
. Allow 30 minutes for the registration to take effect.
