Wireless Access

Resnetx Wireless Network

In-room wireless computing via Resnetx is available to all residents of:

  • Segundo
  • Tercero
  • Thoreau Hall in Cuarto
  • Primero Grove

Resnetx is also available in the following public locations in the residence halls:

  • Maya Angelou Room (Cuarto DC)
  • Regan Main
  • Segundo and Tercero Academic Advising Centers
  • First floor television lounge in the Tercero Services Center
  • Segundo High Rise First Floor Lounges & Study Rooms
  • Alder Study Room
  • Miller Study Room
  • Thompson Main Lounge
  • Webster & Emerson Study Rooms

A kerberos login ID and passphrase, and a computer that is registered with UC Davis, are required in order to connect and log in to ResNetX.

Personal Wireless Networks

Student Housing policy does not allow personal wireless access points (WAPs) to be installed in locations where Resnetx is available because WAPs will create interference with Resnetx service. As we continue to renovate our facilities, we will continue to expand our Resnetx coverage.

If your residence hall does not have Resnetx service, you may install a personally-owned wireless access device. For the 2014-2015 academic year, this is only allowed in Emerson Hall and Webster Hall. RCA assistance is available to help with this setup and self-help instructions are also available on the Housing Computing Website.

You are responsible for all network traffic that goes through your network port, including wireless communications, and it's your responsibility to ensure your wireless network is secure. You really don't want to get a first DMCA violation, especially because of someone else's actions, because a second DMCA violation will lead to permanent port deactivation—no network access at all—and even the loss of the privilege to use the campus wireless network. Be sure to practice safe and secure computing when using your personal wireless device (enable encryption, do not share the login password, etc.).
