Connect multiple computers to the IUB or IUPUI network

In Indiana University Bloomington and IUPUI campus housing, there is generally one data jack per resident. If you need to connect more than one computer to a single data jack, you will need to provide your own hub. The hub and its configuration must not violate any UITS policies, including Extending the University Data Network (IT-19).

For more, see Connect to the internet at IU.

Technology Center Consulting (TCC) staff are unable to provide either a switch or cables to connect your multiple computers. You can obtain these items from a local computer store. TCC consultants will help you configure the hub if necessary.

The IU Secure wireless network is available in most IU Bloomington and IUPUI campus residences.

IU Bloomington: You may operate a properly configured, FCC-approved wireless access point (WAP) as an exception to the Extending the University Data Network (IT-19) and Wireless Networking (IT-20) policies from the University Information Policy Office (UIPO) only if your residence is listed at Wireless Networking: Temporary Exception 2 (ITE20-02). Once IU Secure is available in your residence, this exception will no longer apply and you will need to remove your WAP from the network. See Configure a wireless access point at IUB or IUPUI if your campus residence does not yet have access to IU Secure.

IUPUI: IU Secure is not available at Park Place. AT&T provides high-speed wireless access to Park Place residents.
