How Do I Connect My Computer or Device to the Internet?

Network Username and Password

In order to connect to IUP’s network, whether wired or wireless, you’ll need to know your network username and password. You can find your password or reset your password by logging into URSA.

Wired Connection

To register for the wired connection in your room, plug in and try to use a Web browser. Follow the instructions to update your computer to use the network using your network account information. You can also go to the iconnect webpage to update your computer in advance. See information about in-room ethernet connections and the Resnet Setup Guide for other details.

Wireless Connection

To use the wireless connection you can also use the iconnect webpage.

Phones and Other Mobile Wireless Network Devices

The IT Support Center has instructions on connecting Personal Mobile Devices to the wireless network connection.


You cannot use a printer on IUP’s network. If you have a wireless printer, please disable the wireless to prevent interference, and connect to your computer directly with a USB cable.

Game Machines and Other Wired Network Devices

These are devices such as game machines, Ruku boxes, Smart TVs, and Blu-Ray players. Note that you need to provide the MAC or physical address of the wired device (there is no registration for wireless devices). If you cannot find the MAC address using these instructions, then check with the manufacturer’s website. You cannot use game machines on IUP’s wireless network. They do not have the ability to authenticate wirelessly on our network.

Note that you need your IUP network username and password to access the Network Registration page. Username should be in the form of iupmsd\username, where “username” is your four-letter username.

You can use the Network Registration Page to register devices that are not computers, but which can access the network via the wired connection.
