Network/Internet Issues

Troubleshooting Suggestions - 10/9/17

Your computer has no network or internet? Here are some things to try:

1. On the back of your phone are three cables. Unplug the middle (network) cable which will turn your phone off. Reseat the connector after a few seconds, and give your phone up to a minute to boot. That should restore your connection to the network.

Didn't work?  Try this second option:

2. Shut your computer off. In the back of the CPU is an ethernet cable that looks like a phone jack. Unplug the cable, leave out for a few seconds, then reseat the cable. Boot your machine, log in, and check your connections to see if you have network and internet connection.

If this is not successful, please call the Helpdesk at x2215
