Ethernet Connectivity

Overview

Southeast offers high-speed wired connectivity to most residence halls, offices, and academic buildings on-campus. Computers and other devices with Ethernet (RJ-45) ports or USB-to-Ethernet adapters can connect to the wired network but requires some setup in-order to gain access to university resources and the Internet.

Procedure

  1. Connect an Ethernet (RJ-45) cable to your computer and to an Ethernet port in the wall; these look similar to phone jacks (RJ-11), but are a little wider.
  2. On the computer, open a web browser and visit http://splat.semo.edu/
  3. Sign in with your SE Key and Password--just like signing into a university computer.
  4. Scroll down to the bottom of the page and press "I Accept". A message should appear that says "Registration Complete. Please reboot the machine."
  5. Restart the computer. Once restarted, the computer should be able to connect to the Internet via Ethernet from anywhere on-campus; to test this, try visiting a site like https://google.com/ or any other non-university site.
