Ethernet network

The College computer "Ethernet" network enables access to network services throughout the college.

All publicly-accessible computers in the computer room and library are connected to this network. There are also numerous network connection points for those that wish to connect their own computers and access the same facilities. There are connection points at every desk in the Library, and at least one connection in each College residence. Please note, the ethernet points in the College administrative offices will only work with college-owned machines. Alternatively, you may wish to use the University wireless network which is currently available in the Library, family flats and conference rooms.

Computing at Wolfson is subject to College and University Rules; IT Support is provided within certain guidelines.


Connecting your computer to the network

Most modern computers come with a network adapter already installed. If you are not sure you have one, or need help identifying it, please come to an IT Surgery.

Once you have a computer with a network adapter, you will need to register the adapter with the college. Every network adapter has a unique "fingerprint", known as the MAC address which we need to know to allow your computer onto the network. The MAC address is 12 characters long, often separated into pairs with colons or hyphens. Every character is either a number, or a letter from A to F.

To find your MAC address in Windows 8/10: Click the Start Menu button, followed by the Windows Settings button. Look for the Network & Internet icon (globe) and click on that and then select Ethernet from the left hand menu. Click on the screen icon on the right, which will probably show the current status as 'Not Connected' or 'No Internet'. The following window shows the MAC (physical) address in the form AA-BB-CC-DD-EE-FF.

To find your MAC address in Windows Vista or Windows 7: Click the Windows button in the bottom left, enter cmd where it says Start Search and press enter on your keyboard. In the box that appears, type ipconfig /all, press enter and look for the line beginning "Physical address". If there is more than one Physical Address given make sure you have the one associated with your Ethernet Device and not any others (for example Wireless).

To find your MAC address in Apple Mac OS X: Pull down the Apple menu (top left), select About this Mac, then click the More Info button and then choose System Report. In the following screen look for the entry Network on the left-hand side, select that and then highlight Ethernet in the upper window. The window below that should then have an entry of the form Ethernet: MAC Address: AA-BB-CC-DD-EE-FF (for example). Scroll down if you cannot see it immediately.

Once you have your MAC address, please email it to IT Support, together with your battels number if you know it. Once we have confirmed that your registration is complete, you can simply plug your machine into any ethernet socket in public areas of the college, or residential rooms and your connection should work. If you have any problems, please contact IT Support.
