Connect a Computer to the Ethernet

Question

How do I connect my personal computer to the Ethernet network?

Answer

  1. Connect your device to a Ethernet cable in your room.
  2. Open a browser and connect to http://netreg.bgsu.edu
  3. You will be directed to register your device. 
  4. Select the Detect button to obtain your MAC address.
  5. Finish the registration process and then reboot your computer. 

Please Note: Many newer laptops and devices no longer have an ethernet port. An appropriate adapter for the device will need to be purchased in order to connect to the ethernet.
