Important Changes to RUWired

RU Wired logo

On October 16th, the Office of Information Technology will begin introducing improvements to RUWired that will change the way laptop users connect. This will have an effect on the way instructors in DCS rooms connect to the Ethernet ports provided in systems and wall jacks. Before connecting to RUWired, users will need to install RUWireless Secure on their laptop and configure their laptops to use it in the classroom. Once installed, users will then be able to connect to any RUWired port that has been updated without needing to provide login information. Instead your computer will automatically be recognized. The new service will result in a faster and more secure Internet experience.

For help configuring your laptop to use the new RUWired connections, view our detailed set up instructions. As always, contact DCS with any questions about using Internet in our classrooms. For questions specifically relating to RUWired and RUWireless, you may also contact the OIT Help Desk.
