Ethernet Roaming enables a properly configured computer (with an Ethernet Card) that has been authorized to roam to plug in to the University's Ethernet network at any of the Network Access Ports around campus.  Roaming is available only to members of the Yale community who are currently paying for a network connection (either static IP ethernet, PPP or ARA). Note that students with on-campus Ethernet connections are normally automatically configured and authorized for roaming.
 

Configuring your computer for Roaming

For a machine to roam, its network software must be configured correctly, that is, it must be set to use DHCP.
 

Macintosh -- using DHCP

To use DHCP on a Macintosh, you must be using System 7.5.3 or higher, with Open Transport.  Open the TCP/IP control panel, then:

Close the TCP/IP control panel, save changes, and restart your machine.  Your computer should now be properly configured; continue now with Authorizing your computer for Roaming.
 

Windows 95/98 -- using DHCP

Open the Network control panel, and double click on TCP/IP. Click on OK to close the TCP/IP window, then click OK to close the Network control panel.  Restart your machine.  Your computer should now be properly configured; continue now with Authorizing your computer for Roaming.
 

Windows NT -- using DHCP

Open your Network Control Panel, click the Protocols tag, then double-click the TCP/IP Protocol.
  • Under DNS
  • Click OK to close the TCP/IP Properties window, then click Close to close the Network control panel.  Restart your machine.  Your computer should now be properly configured; continue now with Authorizing your computer for Roaming.
     

    Authorizing your computer for Roaming


    For a machine to roam, it needs to be authorized to do so. A machine is eligible to be authorized if:

    1. It already is using a valid ethernet connection at Yale, or
    2. Its owner is paying for a PPP or ARA account.
    If your computer is eligible, please fill out and submit the form below.  Once we’ve verified that you are eligible to roam, we will set up your roaming account and send you a confirmation via email.

    Note that the form requires that you tell us your Ethernet Hardware Address; we may also need your current static IP address. For help on finding your Ethernet Hardware Address or IP address, select the appropriate link:
