How do I configure and secure a private LAN or wireless router at Virginia Tech?


Students are not permitted to connect personal wireless routers to the Virginia Tech network in buildings with Virginia Tech wireless service.  If your residence hall does not yet have Wi-Fi, you may connect a wireless router until the hall receives wireless service. Then the router must be disconnected.

Each residence hall room will have one active wired network portal. Residents may purchase a commodity Ethernet switch from the University Bookstore or other vendor to provide more wired network connections.

To connect to the eduroam wireless network, follow the instructions at Connecting to eduroam at Virginia Tech.
