Wired and wireless data networks are available to residents of the Hammond campus residence halls.
Instructions on connecting:
Wired Data Network (Registration required):
Once your network connection is plugged in and operating, you must register your computer on the Residence Hall wired data network. The registration requires you to log in using your Career Account Username and password. This should be the same login and password that you use to log into University computers.
- Open your web browser. The registration page should automatically appear.
- Follow the directions on the registration page. The process only takes a few minutes to complete.
- Restart your computer.
Note: Users are allowed three computer registrations by default. Accommodations can be made to register non-standard network devices such as Game Consoles (ex. Playstation or Xbox). To complete manual registration of one of these devices please contact the Customer Service Center at 219.989.2888 option 2 to place a service request.
Wireless Data Network:
- “eduroam″ is the preferred secure network for current PNW students, staff, and faculty. It is also the preferred secure network used for W. Lafayette, and other visiting education institutions that support eduroam.
- “attwifi” is a guest wireless network service offered to visiting guests provided by AT&T. Visiting guests of the University can connect to this network and gain Internet access free of charge.
Note: The original Nintendo Wii console is not compatible with CalnetMedia. The user must purchase a Nintendo Wii USB to Ethernet adapter.
All other gaming/media devices such as the Xbox 360, Xbox One, Playstation 4, AppleTV, Roku, most smart TV’s, and most smart DVD players are compatible with CalnetMedia. It’s preferred that if the device has a wired connection, then the user should use the wired jack in their room. The wired connection will provide additional bandwidth over the wireless network. The user must call the Customer Service Center to register media/gaming devices for the wired network as well.
