Can I register a wireless access point (WAP) or router?

Yes, but our network usage policies require that you not have it configured as a router with NAT (Network Address Translation), which is usually the default configuration when you buy it from the store. Please consult your device's manual or contact your RCC for help properly configuring your wireless access point or router.

If you are running a server, you may want to hardcode your IP address into your network connection settings so that you do not have a possible drop in service while your computer renews the lease on your IP address from the DHCP server. If you do decide to do this, you should talk to your RCC to obtain correct router and subnet mask information.

However, if you do not need to do this, we recommend that people do not hardcode their IP addresses and instead, set up their network connections to get their IP addresses via DHCP. This helps us manage the network better and lets us change your IP address for changes to the network.

    Turn off NAT and DHCP in the router configuration and make sure the ethernet cable is connected to the internet port of the router to the wall port.

    Configure the router as a WAP. Exmaple:
