Linux Setup Directions

  1. Manually Setup your Wired Network for Linux (Ubuntu)

    Please contact the ResNet Office at any time if you feel that you need help with any of this.

    5. In the "802.1x Security" tab, use the following screenshot to aid you in applying the same settings to your window. We recommend only changing the settings that are specified in the example; changing other values may result in a failed Ethernet registration. Also, don't forget to hit the "Save" button in order to apply the changes.

    6. Finally, ensure that the icon in the top right hand bar of your desktop matches the circled icon in the following example. That indicates that you have network access, and that your device is registered.
