- Connecting to 'utguest' for family members
ResNet is installing Wi-Fi for BRK, COL, and GAT through January 2022. Residents are asked to deactivate Wi-Fi on any routers they may have installed when their apartment is converted to avoid interference. Wi-Fi devices will need to be configured for to utexas or utexas-iot.
Multi-occupancy apartments may utilize a switch on the single Ethernet port provided to share that port and enable each resident to register their device to their EID and not be liable for another resident’s activities. ResNet has tested this switch with its system. Note: Routers will not provide that separation, although residents may register their different individual routers on different ports of a switch to maintain that separation.
Important note for apartment occupants with children:
- The university does not restrict content on any networks.
- If you need content filtering for your family, you will need to provide it through software or hardware controls.
