For any computer running Windows Vista, 7, 8, 8.1, or 10, you can connect to our cu-secure wireless network using your CedarNet username and password. For detailed instructions, please visit the Help Pages.
For any Mac running a recent version of Apple's OS X (10.6.8 or newer), you can connect directly to cu-secure, using your CedarNet username and password when prompted. For detailed instructions, please visit the Help Pages.
Gaming Systems - Wired
For any gaming system that has an ethernet port, you can connect it directly to the Cedarville network using a standard ethernet cable. The device should be configured to obtain an IP address automatically, but no other steps are required. IT provides and supports the gigabit network ports that can be found in each residence hall room. Ethernet cables can be purchased from the University Bookstore.
Gaming Systems - Wireless
If you would like to connect your gaming system to our wireless network, you will need to register the device using our manual registration process. For more details on manual registration, please reference the Help Pages.
Even if your device doesn't fit into one of the above categories, you can still get connected. With a few exceptions (including some Windows Phones, eReaders, and BlackBerry smartphones), most devices are able to connect to our cu-secure wireless network. Please try that first, as it's the best and most secure way of connecting to our wireless network.
If you have trouble, you can use our manual registration system to register your device with IT and have it placed on the cu-manual network, or bring the device to our TechStop counter for personalized assistance.
