Wired Connections

When connecting to the wired network for the first time, you will be required to log in with your UARK username and password.

The Network Engineering Team is in the process of implementing a new system for  connecting computers to the wired network. Authentication is required for both systems after you connect your computer or device to the network port using an Ethernet cable. To proceed using the old self-registration system, follow the prompts. To proceed using the new Juniper Network Access Control system, follow the prompts or contact your department's tech support.

Publicly accessible network ports are located on floors three, four, five and six of the Arkansas Union, as well as floors two, three and four of Mullins Library. An Ethernet cable (CAT-5) is required. See the map of wired access locations in the Mullins Library lobby.

For additional information about connecting from a network port on campus, see the Network Access Tech Article.
