Every residence hall has a wireless network available for student use. The wireless network is available from every student room. Each student has to register their device(s) to access either the wireless or wired networks. More information regarding the wired network is below under the Ethernet section.
Required Ethernet Cables:
Each room in Roosevelt and Roth Quads is equipped with one RJ11 Ethernet jack. An RJ11 to RJ45 Ethernet cable is required to go online from these jacks.
Each room in H-Quad, Mendelsohn, Kelly, and Tabler Quads, as well as West, Chapin and Schomburg Apartments is equipped with one RJ45 Ethernet jack with two ports. An RJ45 Ethernet cable is required to go online from these jacks.
Cables may be purchased at the Seawolves Marketplace, located in the Student Activities Center. If two or more residents in one room wish to connect to the Internet via the ethernet port, the residents will need to purchase a hub or switch.
How to Register:
The registration page is located at https://register.resnet.stonybrook.edu. In order to register your computer, you must access this page on the computer you wish to register, while plugged into the jack in your dormitory. For more information, visit http://resnet.stonybrook.edu/ or call Client Support at 2-9800.
