Ethernet Instructions

ACU provides an Ethernet connection that allows users in-room Internet access 24 hours a day. Every hall has an Ethernet connection for each student in the room (with the exception of Sherrod Apartments). You will need a 10baseT Ethernet card installed on your computer and a category 5 Ethernet cable with RJ 45 connectors. There are NO additional charges for using the Ethernet connection in your room.

Warning: Do not plug your phone cable into an Ethernet jack; it could break your ResNet connection. Both ports look very similar but the phone jack is smaller. Check with a Team55 representative if you are not sure which port to plug into.
