How To

The following are steps for how to determine your operating system type. This is useful information in the event you call the helpdesk or require assistance from an RCC, as they will want to know what type of operating system they are troubleshooting.

Overview

Have you connected and went through the XpressConnect process in WiFi-UNI -Setup?

This wizard will configure your device to properly connect to WiFi-UNI.

Do you have the correct login information?

WiFi-UNI uses your CatID login. This login is the one used in computer labs. Please verify that you can login to a computer lab and test your login.

Why Remove P2P Programs?

Peer-to-Peer (P2P) programs can and often do cause a variety of problems for computers. Viruses can be spread over these P2P networks. They may also come with malicious programs causing pop-ups to occur, and can even corrupt your computer files. P2P use also can use a large amount of UNI's Internet bandwidth, slowing down Internet access and can expose you to legal liability if you are found sharing copyrighted files.

Power outages or a period of inactivity can cause a computer to display the ResNet registration screen even though the computer is already registered. The instructions below should allow you to successfully restore Internet access.

If you continue to have problems after following these instructions, try shutting down the computer, plugging your network cable into the other orange data jack, and then turn your computer back on. If you are still having difficulties after this, please call the ResNet helpdesk at 273-RSNT (273-7768).

Make sure that you have your Windows XP CD and Windows XP Product key, which is usually located with the disk package or on the computer case. Also gather any driver disks that came with your computer or other hardware you installed, and the disks for any programs you want re-installed.
