Network Registration

In order to use your personal computer, network gaming device (XBOX, Playstation, Wii), or other wireless device on the CMU network, you must first register it. During the registration process your computer will automatically be scanned to insure you have the latest Windows Updates and an Antivirus Software with up-to-date definitions. If you need an antivirus software, we recommend Avast and its free. Take few moments and familiarize yourself with our various network polices. Be aware that personal wireless access points, routers, hubs, and switches are not allowed on campus.
