ResNet provides users with a single wired 100MB Ethernet connection to the UNO network and Internet. If your computer does not already have an Ethernet network interface, they can be purchased at many office/computer supply stores. You will also need an Ethernet network cable (CAT5 with RJ-45 connectors) to connect your PC to the network outlet in your room.
ResNet supports only personal computers utilizing the following operating systems:
- Windows XP (Service Pack 2)
- Windows Vista
- Windows 7
- Mac OS X
ResNet does not support the sharing of connections through hubs, switches, routers, or wireless access points. Non-PC devices (game consoles, network phones, etc.) are not supported.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Your computer should be equipped with software that protects it from network-based hazards. This software should include firewall, anti-virus, and anti-spyware protection. It is also very important to keep your operating system updated.
