Information Technology Services provides secured wireless and wired 802.1x network connections in our residences and in the academic buildings. All Bethel community members and guest using our network must agree to the Responsible Use Policy (RUP). Failure to comply may result in restricted network access.

Connecting your computer to Bethel's network

These network connection guides will help you configure your computer for network/Internet access.

If you have an operating system that is not listed (such as Linux), this does not mean your computer will not work on our network. It merely means that ITS does not provide the configuration resources to do so.

Connecting your gaming console or other devices to Bethel's network

Because many devices are not 802.1x compatible they require using the Internet Connection Sharing to get online.

Internet Connection Sharing in Windows 7

In the event that you do not have a computer that can run Internet Connection Sharing the ITS Help Desk has a limited number of devices that have been configured with Internet Connection Sharing for check-out during the academic year.

Hardware and operating system requirements

While ITS does not restrict 802.1x viable computers from accessing the network, we do carry a hardware and operating system requirement for support. These requirements can be found in our ResNet support policy.
