Wired Internet (Dorms Only)

Weber State University provides wired internet to active students living in the student dorms.

While using our network services, users are subject to WSU's Acceptable Use Policy for Computing and Network Resources (PPM 10-2).  Violation of this policy may result in a user's network access being suspended.  Note that any sort of peer-to-peer (P2P) connection is strictly prohibited while on campus (Torrents, Limewire, etc.).

What users need:

  • Residency in the student dorms (Wildcat Village, University Village, etc.)
  • An Ethernet cable (e.g. Cat 5, 5e, 6)
  • A device (computer) that has an Ethernet port

Plug one end of the Ethernet cable into the device and the other end into the Ethernet wall jack in the student dorm bedroom.  An internet connection should then automatically be established.  Note that although some dorms may have more than one Ethernet wall jack, normally only jacks located in the bedrooms are activated.

DHCP must be enabled on the device which will allow it to obtain an IP address automatically.  Most devices come with DHCP turned on by default, but it may depend on the operating system being used.
