Wireless Access

moobilenetx replaces ResNetX after December 2014

Over the winter break, Communications Resources will be retiring the SSID resnetx, which only appears in Residence Halls, and replacing it with the campuswide moobilenetx. All other SSIDs will remain the same. Communications Resources is instituting this change as a first step at consolidating wireless services throughout the campus. The hope is this small adjustment will improve services and make the wireless networking experience more seamless on campus. For information on configuring a device to use moobilenetx, please visit wireless.ucdavis.edu.

Should you have any questions, when you return from break, feel free to contact IT Express at ithelp@ucdavis.edu, or 530-754-HELP(4357).

moobilenetx Wireless Network

moobilenetx wireless network connectivity is available in-room to all residents of:

  • Segundo and Tercero Academic Advising Centers
  • First floor television lounge in the Tercero Services Center

A kerberos login ID and passphrase are required to connect to moobilenetx.

Personal Wireless Networks

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

If your residence hall does not have moobilenetx 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 setup, and self-help instructions are available on the wireless setup webpage.

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.).
