|It is not necessary to install the Novell client on your computer to access the Internet. If your network card is installed, you may connect to the Internet by following these steps:
FOR ALL WIRELESS CONNECTIONS:
- If your laptop does not automatically find and connect to "snu_wireless," you will need to select it from the list of available wireless networks.
- After you have connected to the wireless network, you can open your Internet browser. It should present you with a login page to access the wireless network. If you do not see this page and/or you receive an error message, type the address http://wireless.snu.edu into the Address bar.
- Occasionally, certain downloaded file-sharing software will cause your machine to be quarantined, preventing Internet access. If this happens, bring it to the Helpdesk office in Herrick 143 and we will help you fix the problem.
- Connection information for Macs may be found here.
FOR ALL WIRED CONNECTIONS:

Each dorm room is equipped with a single network connection for student computers. Students wishing to connect more than 1 computer per room may purchase a hub and 3 network cables from any local computer retail store. One cable will run from each pc to the hub and one will run from the hub to the wall jack. Make sure to measure the distances from the wall jack to the hub and from the hub to the computers in order to buy the appropriate lengths of cable.
Using NetStorage to connect to SNU:
SNU Students are allocated 100 MB of personal network space on the F Drive to keep class work and other files in a central location. You may access your F Drive on campus by logging in using the Novell Client. The SNU Campus labs have the Novell Client installed. You can also access your F Drive from off campus via a web browser by going to NetStorage (https://home.snu.edu/NetStorage) and logging in with your username and password. NetStorage is a service that allows you to access your network drives, including your "F Drive and G Drive" via web browser. There is a link to NetStorage in MySNU under the Services menu.
NetStorage steps to follow:
- Click on the NetStorage link.
- Enter your Network username and password.
- The NetStorage webpage displays the network files and folders currently available for each user.
- NetStorage provides many of the same features for working with files and folders available in Windows Explorer. By saving a file to your F drive, NetStorage allows you to download it at home, work on it, and upload it back to your F drive. You may only download files individually instead of collectively.
- To download a file, select the individual file, go to the File menu and choose download. Select where you want to save the file on your computer.
