How do I connect my laptop to the wired network from my office?

  • Make sure you have a network socket in your office/lab to connect your computer to.
    If you do - check it is live by contacting Information Services
    If you don't - contact Information Services (How do I do that?)
  • Make sure you have an active Aberystwyth University IT account (How do I do that?)
  • Find the MAC address of the ethernet (Network) card on your computer (How do I do that?)
  • Register your MAC address (How do I do that?) - After registering your MAC address, you may need to wait up to half an hour before you can connect to the network
  • Ensure your computer is up to date and secure from viruses (How do I do that?)
