Wired Connections

Wired connections to the cable modem require an Ethernet cable (also called CAT5 or CAT6 cable). These cables can be purchased wherever electronics are sold. ResNet also has limited quantities available to borrow, during your stay, at our office located in the basement of Donovan Hall, room 34A. If you already have an Ethernet cable, follow these steps to get connected:

  1. Connect an Ethernet cable from your computer or Ethernet-ready device to one of the four available Ethernet ports located on the back of the modem.
  2. If this is your first time using an Ethernet cable with the cable modem, you will need to register your computer or Ethernet-ready device before you can connect to ResNet. Please see our instructions for registering for more information.
  3. If you are unable to load the registration page or websites after successfully registering, please consult our troubleshooting instructions for more information.

Wireless Connections

If you intend to use the supplemental wireless from the cable modems:

  1. Connect your computer or device to the UKYResnet wireless network with the highest signal.
  2. If this is your first time connecting wirelessly to the cable modem, you will need to register it. Please see our instructions for registering for more information.
  3. If you are unable to load the registration page or websites after successfully registering, please consult our troubleshooting instructions for more information.

Cable TV

Each room has a cable mini-box that allows you to receive cable TV programming. To set up your television to work with the cable mini-box, please see Time Warner Cable's Setup Guide (requires a PDF reader to view).

If you have any issues with the cable mini-box or remote or would like to purchase additional content or services, call their toll-free number for UK support at 855-330-3126.
