Additional Hardware Information
Wireless: Wireless technology can be used on UCM’s network if it complies with published standards and requirements. For further information on wireless connectivity in the residence halls, visit our website at http://www.ucmo.edu/x31267.xml.
Routers: Routers in the residence halls are not recommended. The recommended solution for rooms containing more that one computer is to use a splitter. Splitters allow two computers in a room to be used at the same time and can be purchased at the Union bookstore.
File sharing, P2P, and printer sharing: File sharing, P2P, and printer sharing across the residential network is highly discouraged.
Recreational Equipment: UCM will not provide support for non academic or recreational equipment such as Xboxes, PlayStations, and Nintendos. Residents must contact the manufacturer for assistance.
