Devices with Wired (Ethernet) Ports

For any device that has an ethernet port, you can connect it directly to the Cedarville network using a standard ethernet cable. The device should be configured to obtain and IP address automatically, but no other steps are required. IT provides and supports the gigabit network ports that can be found in each residence hall room. Ethernet cables can be purchased from the University Bookstore.

Ethernet ports in dorms are activated by request only. If you would like the port in your room activated, please submit an online service ticket. 

Devices Without Wired (Ethernet) Ports

If you would like to connect your device to our wireless network, you will need to register the device using our manual registration process. For more details on manual registration, please see Register and Connect to the cu-manual Wireless Network.

Other Devices

Even if your device doesn't fit into one of the above categories, you can still get connected. With a few exceptions (including some Windows Phones, eReaders, and BlackBerry smartphones), most devices are able to connect to our eduroam wireless network. Please try that first, as it's the best and most secure way of connecting to our wireless network. 

If you have trouble, you can register your device with IT and connect to the cu-manual network, or bring the device to our IT Service Center for personalized assistance. 

Off-Campus Wireless Connections
