Wired

Staff and PhD student offices are wired at 100Mbit to network switches managed by central NUIT.

It is not safe to assume that a spare Ethernet socket is suitable for immediate use as some are disconnected and some are dedicated to the telephone system. If there is a socket that appears to be spare, has no 'phone only' sticker, but doesn't seem to work, then contact the support team for assistance in getting it activated. The following information will be required about your machine:-

  • Machine Make and Model
  • Serial Number (if known)
  • Description (if not standard desktop/laptop)
  • Operating System
  • MAC Address
  • Machine Location (building, floor and room)
  • Socket or Cable Number you intend to use (if visible)
