How to connect to ResNet. 

Hardwired Connection 

In order to connect to ResNet, you will need an Ethernet card which has a 100BaseT cable connector (looks like an enlarged phone jack) and an RJ45 cable. The installation of your Ethernet adapter should already have been completed. If your card was not installed by the manufacturer, then you should follow the instructions that were bundled with your Ethernet adapter. ResNet support does not install Network Cards inside the computer. If you need further assistance from outside the University you can try an outside vendor.

Simple Setup:

  •  If you have not already done so, attach your Ethernet cable to your computer and the wall jack. This would be an orange port that looks similar to a phone jack.
  • If you have a new computer with a properly working Ethernet card, TCP/IP protocol installed and configured to use DHCP, you should be able to just run your browser and be connected to the University of Memphis Login page.
  •  PLUG IN MACHINE, PLUG IN CABLE, and RUN BROWSER. You will see the "SafeConnect" Network Registration Page.
