Network - Connecting On Campus
Faculty, staff, & administrators connecting wired in a DU building
If you are a faculty, staff, or administrator attempting to connect to the campus network with a DU owned machine, you should be able to simply start the computer and it will already be connected. New faculty, however, may first need to make sure that they have an available internet connection or port; more information on this subject is available in the page on Port Activation. All active employees can use DuqNet wireless to connect with DU owned or personal machines with wireless capability.
