By default, new users to ResNet should be able to connect five devices to the network through our registration process.

Internet bandwidth on ResNet is a shared resource, so the more users utilizing this in a given time, the less bandwidth there is per user. During weekdays, ResNet bandwidth is limited between 7am and 6pm. On weeknights after 6pm and weekends, ResNet shares bandwidth with UNI's campus network, providing faster download speeds. Below is a graph of ResNet's current Internet usage.

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.

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 (319) 273-RSNT ((319) 273-7768).

  1. Open the Settings and choose the General option.

Note: Your computer may contain a wireless network card as well as a wired network card, or contain multiple network cards. When looking for the computer's MAC address, be sure to find the MAC address associated with the network card you wish to use. If you are connecting through Wi-Fi, you must use the MAC address associated with the wireless network card, and users plugged in through ethernet cable require their wired MAC address.

You may have an incorrect IP address in which case you would need to "Release/Renew" your IP address. Instructions on how to do this are found here.

If the release/renew process doesn't work, try clearing your browser cache. Instructions on how to do this can be found here.
