Students (both undergrad and graduate) get most of the help they need with computers through their Resident Computer Consultant (RCC). These are students who live in student housing whose job it is to provide this help. Each RCC is assigned to a housing unit (some larger ones may have several RCCs). To find yours, go to
Your computer can connect to the Stanford Network (SUNet) from on or off campus. The exact procedure, however, depends on a few different factors.
See the Connecting to the Stanford Network (SUNet) with Windows page for connection instructions.
NetDB is a database tool used primarily by LNAs (local network administrators) and IT Services staff to assign and manage IP addresses for computers and printers.
Stanford community members can use the StanfordWhat web application to get information about devices such as computers, routers, and subnets on the Stanford University Network (SUNet). Go to the StanfordWhat network search page.
Costs for fiber placement/use vary based on the specific request by a client.
If fiber runs between buildings and in some cases within a building, there will be a duct space usage charge for having client owned fiber run through IT Services owned/maintained conduit. The IT Services Project Consultant assigned to work with you can help identify these costs.
The Stanford Network Self-Registration (SNSR) service combines a web-based self registration application and the Stanford Network Registration Tool (SNRT) to be run on the registering host computer. It is designed to make the process of network registration easier and to improve desktop security and network records accuracy.
All of the IP addresses for network self-registration could be in use.
To alleviate this issue:
Stanford Network Self-Registration is offered as an optional service on a network or department basis. The Local Area Network Adminstartor (LNA) sets up the network to participate in the service.
See the Stanford Network Self-Registration web site for more information.
Find your Ethernet ID/address. You will not be able to use your computer on the network until your Ethernet ID is registered.
If your Ethernet card isn't already installed in your computer, install it. Configure the TCP/IP protocol to obtain an IP address and the DNS server address automatically. Determine your hardware Ethernet MAC address.
