COVID-19 Information and Updates
The ITS ResNet office is open limited hours to start the fall semester. We have phone coverage from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, and are available for 30 minute appointments for personal device support. We are not currently accepting computers in our tech center for drop-off repair service, and have temporarily suspended our in-room "house call" service offerings. To browse our self-help knowledge base or get a support ticket created, please visit
This page will help you connect your device to the wireless network while in Windows 7.  Most devices running Windows 7 can be connected using the "Quick Set-Up," option.  If you find that you are having trouble connecting to the wireless network after attempting a Quick Set-Up, please follow the link on the bottom of this page for instructions on how to do an "Advanced Set-Up."

These instructions assume the use of a Wireless Network Card that is managed by the Windows 7 "Wireless Zero Configuration Service."  If your network card cannot be managed by Windows, please refer to the documentation that came from the manufacturer of your network card to determine how to connect to WPA2 networks.
