Ethernet (wired) connections are faster and less susceptible to speed fluctuations than wireless connections. Because an Ethernet connection directly connects your computer to the UD network, it is an acceptable way for employees to access confidential, critical information (i.e., PII). IT recommends students use an Ethernet connection during high-traffic times like course enrollment.
When you connect to the UD network with an Ethernet cable, you will be prompted to register your device on the UD Network Page. You will need to do this even if you have already registered the device wirelessly.
