Frequently Asked Questions:

How do I connect additional devices?

Login to the MyResNet online portal. Click "Connect more devices" on your user menu. Select the device you wish to add and enter its MAC address. Click "Add Device." Restart the added device and connect to MyResNet.

How do I retrieve my username and password?

Go to "Forgot Username or Password?" Enter your email address, and answer the security questions you created for your account.

What's the difference between the "MyResNet" and "MyResNet Legacy" connections?

“MyResNet” is a 5 GHz network that delivers download speeds of 100 Mbps per device. “MyResNet Legacy” is a 2.4 GHz network designed to support older devices that are not capable of connecting to a 5 GHz network. These older devices have technical limitations on the speeds they can achieve. “MyResNet Legacy” is optimized for such older devices, and it performs best when the only devices connected to the network are those older devices that have to use it. 

Your device may support connecting to both of the MyResNet networks. For the best experience and fastest speeds, connect to the network named “MyResNet” whenever possible. 

If I can connect my device without registering it with my account, does that mean I don't need to?

Unregistered devices will be unable to connect to the MyResNet network at the peak speeds (100/50). If you want your device to perform at peak speeds, you need to register the device on your account first. 

How do I know if I need upgraded service (MyResNet Choice)?

MyResNet Basic should be more than adequate for most users. If you’re considering purchasing MyResNet Choice, designed for hard-core gamers and those with more than 10 devices, we suggest waiting until you have tried MyResNet Basic for yourself.

Will I be able to connect when visiting friends in other residence halls?

Yes. Once you create an account, you can connect your registered devices in all residence halls with MyResNet.

As more people connect to MyResNet, won’t it slow down Wi-Fi on my devices?

Your speeds should not decrease as more devices connect. The MyResNet network design provides for dedicated speeds per student, per device regardless of the number of students or devices on the network.
