If you are having trouble registering your computer, the following may be helpful.
- Client Already Registered
If you see this error, it means that your computer is already registered and does
not need to be registered again. Try restarting (rebooting) your computer as this
will often correct this problem.
- Authentication Failure
Information you typed in the NetID and/or Password boxes on the registration screen
(Step 3 above) were incorrect.
Try entering your information again. Ensure you spell your
NetID and Password correctly (remember, the password is case-sensitive!).
Contact the Help Desk for assistance
if you continue to have trouble authenticating.
- Stuck at Confirmation Screen
If you have registered your computer and received the confirmation that
the registration was successful, you may need to wait up to 5 additional minutes
before the registration becomes effective and your computer is switched into the
correct network. This can happen during times of heavy network load or if a lot
of people are registering at the same time (such as the start of a semester when
a lot of students are moving into the residence halls). If, after waiting some additional
time, you are still prompted to register, you should restart (reboot) your computer.
