Networking your PC in the Residence Halls
Your PC networking software configuration must be compatible with ETSUs network. In addition, your PC will need additional hardware – a network interface card and a patch cable.
Your networking jack is located on the same faceplate as your telephone jack.
A network interface card is not a modem. (A modem uses telephone lines for communication and is much slower.) A network interface card uses technology that enables you to connect directly to the ETSU network.
