Connecting to Ethernet

In order for your Ethernet based device to operate on UA Little Rock’s wired network, you must either configure your Ethernet adapter for dot1x connectivity (PC’s and devices with web browsers) or pre-register your device (Game consoles, SmartTV’s, any device WITHOUT a web browser).

PLEASE NOTE: In instances where students perform both options 1 and 2 for a single device, they are unable to connect to the internet. If you have performed both options and are unable to connect to the internet, log into https://access.ualr.edu and de-register the MAC address of your computer’s Ethernet adapter.

Option 1: How to configure your computer for dot1x capability (PC’s and devices WITH web browsers)

The preferred method is to configure your computer for dot1x connectivity [i.e. wired Ethernet connection]. Do not check the box for validate server certificate. This provides the most secure connection and is based on netID credentials.

Option 2: Pre-registering your device (Game consoles, SmartTV’s, any device WITHOUT a web browser)

An alternate method is to pre-register your device on the access.ualr.edu page. This method uses your device’s mac address for authentication, and is somewhat less secure.
