IT provides Ethernet (wired) networking to just about all locations on campus, using standard RJ-45 jacks.
Features and Benefits
Ethernet provides the fastest connection to resources on the Amherst network and to the Internet.
You need an Ethernet adapter and cable to connect your computer to the wired network. The first time you connect you will have to NetReg your computer on the Amherst network.
Ethernet is ubiquitous on campus, with the exception of some rooms in the social dorms that had such bad wireless access that their Ethernet ports were used to connect dedicated wireless access points.
