ResNet: Getting Started
- Connect to the network
In your residence hall room, either plug into the port
in your room using an Ethernet cable or connect to one of the "ResNet"
- To connect to the "ResNet" wifi network, you will need to login with the following information:
- Username: your user ID (i.e. abc234)
- Password: your normal NAU password
- Accept the security certificate when prompted to do so.
- Connect to "ResNet-Alt" for any device that isn't a computer (gaming devices, mobile phones, DVR's, etc...)
- Install the SafeConnect Policy Key
After you restart your computer, open a web browser. You will
then be redirected to the SafeConnect Policy Key download page.
All Windows and Macintosh computers will be required to download
and install the SafeConnect Policy Key. Gaming and mobile
devices will be auto-detected and passed through SafeConnect. You will not need to download the Policy Key on those devices. The SafeConnect Policy Key scans each machine and verifies that the machine meets ResNet requirements.
- SafeConnect Scanning and Remediation.
For Windows computers, NAU requires that you have a supported, up-to-date anti-virus program and Microsoft Windows Update set to automatically
download and install. If your machine does not meet the above requirements, follow the
instructions on the SafeConnect web page. Once your machine is
updated and configured correctly, you will have complete network
access. Macs and other devices will not need to meet these requirements.
