Can I have additional Ethernet networking ports added in my residence hall room?

Customers may purchase an “unmanaged switch” or “hub” which is basically a splitter that allows multiple devices to be connected to one Ethernet port. We recommend the Netgear Gigabit Unmanaged Desktop Switches. Their 4-port switch costs around $35. If you need help selecting a switch, please contact ResNET.

Warning: Customers are prohibited from using a “managed” or “smart” switch anywhere on-campus. For the most part you wouldn’t want to purchase one because of the high price.
