Residence Hall Wireless
Do not install wireless equipment, such as routers, in your room. Doing so can cause wireless connectivity problems for you, your roomates, or even students living around you. If you have signal strength issues, contact us and we will visit your room to determine whether we need to install an access point for you that is pre-configured to work with our wireless system.

Residence Hall Ethernet
Each room has at least one Ethernet port for Internet connection. Connecting to the network using an Ethernet cable does not require you to log in.
If you would like to stream media-rich content such as YouTube, Netflix, Hulu, Pandora, Spotify, etc., you may want to plug your computer into the Ethernet port. The Ethernet connection will be reliable for streaming media-rich content, even when many users are connected to the internet during peak times.
To connect to the wired, Ethernet Residence Hall network:
- You will need an Ethernet cable. Note that this cable is different from a phone cable and can be purchased anywhere that electronics or office supplies are sold, including Walt-Mart and some drugstores, or the Flagler College Bookstore.
- All you need to do is to plug the Ethernet cable from your computer into the Ethernet jack and you will be automatically connected to the Internet.
- If you and your roommates need to connect more than one computer to the Ethernet network, you will need to purchase an Ethernet switch and extra Ethernet cables.
