The residential network at WTAMU is maintained by WTAMU Network Services.
Getting Connected via Wired Connection
For wired connections, residents' computers will need a standard Ethernet card installed. In addition, they will need an Ethernet cable with RJ-45 connectors. WTAMU does not provide cards, cables, adapters, or hubs for residents. Some recently purchased computers do not have an Ethernet card and an Ethernet adapter (such as an Ethernet to USB adapter) may be necessary. Ethernet cables are readily available at most electronics stores. The length of cable needed can be anywhere from 3 to 25 feet, depending upon the residence hall and location of the computer.Note: Residents should make sure their Ethernet adapter is functioning properly (i.e. the correct driver is installed) before attempting to connect computers to the network.
