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 at 303 Commons. 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 it 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

Wireless connectivity is provided by Time Warner Cable. To connect, follow these steps:

  1. Connect your computer or device to the UKY_TWC_WiFi wireless network.
  2. Open your web browser and connect to a website. You will be presented with Time Warner Cable's terms and conditions. Upon clicking accept, you will be online.

UKY_TWC_WiFi Device Registration

If you want to register a device manually (Xbox, Tivo, Roku, etc.), from your computer connected to the UKY_TWC_WiFi network, go to http://www.addmydevice.com and fill out the form. You will only need to do this one per year. You will need the MAC address of the device you want to register. Please refer to our instructions for locating MAC addresses for popular gaming consoles and devices.
