Capital University provides wired and wireless connectivity for faculty, staff and students, but you need to take a few steps before you can connect to our network.
Configure your computer for network access using our instructions for Windows (PDF) and Macs (PDF) systems. Warning! Modems, routers, switches and hubs will not work with the university network and will be damaged if plugged in to the network port.
The Cisco NAC appliance is used to protect your computer, and others connected to
the network, from viruses and malicious network activity by enforcing a
set of standards for connecting to the network. The first time you connect to the Capital network, you will be prompted to install the Cisco NAC agent before you are granted full network access. You will be prompted to enter your university ID username and password. This will verify your identity and ensure that your computer system meets the necessary security requirements.
Before connecting to the university network, you should make sure your system meets the following security requirements.
Windows machines must have:
Macintosh users must contact IT and provide their system mac address to get on the network.
Once the Cicso NAC has checked your system and verified you as a trusted user, you will be given full network access. Users of systems that do not have the proper security requirements will be quarantined and redirected to a restricted network with instructions on how to address the specific problems identified.
The Help Desk can assist you with the necessary settings for getting connected to the network. Visit us on the first floor of Blackmore Library. If your personal computer is contaminated with spyware, viruses or malware, or if you are having more extensive technical problems, you should consult a qualified repair technician. We have a list of local retailers (PDF) and repair shops that can help.
We don't configure or support iPads or iOS devices, but you can use these instructions (PDF) as a guide to configuring your own device. In some cases, you may need to contact the manufacturer of your mobile device for assistance. Nooks and Kindles are not approved devices for network access due to security concerns.
In the residence halls, game consoles can be connected to the network via Ethernet cable. You cannot connect game consoles wirelessly, so you may need to purchase an adapter for certain systems. Download the instructions for connecting game consoles (PDF).
