Connect to PittNet

Connecting to Pitt's Wireless and Wired Networks

Wireless PittNet provides fast, secure, and easy-to-use Internet access from academic buildings and residence halls across campus. Those with newer laptops, smartphones, and tablets can take advantage of faster wireless speeds by using Wirelss PittNet Fast. If your device does not support Wireless-PittNet-Fast, you will still be able to use Wireless PittNet.

If you want to access restricted University resources, such as digital research journals, databases, and departmental printers, you will need to use Secure Remote Access. Students can print from Wireless PittNet using Pitt Printing.

Please remember that wireless PittNet is a shared resource, meaning your actions affect others on the network. By following our wireless guidelines, you can help make Wireless PittNet a great service for everyone.

Connecting your Gaming Console to PittNet with Windows

Connecting your Gaming Console to PittNet with Windows

Overview

The following instructions can be used to configure your Windows computer to share the Internet connection in your residence hall room with a gaming console.

Requirements

  • A computer running Windows Vista, Windows 7, or Windows 8 that is currently configured for wired PittNet
  • A USB Ethernet adapter (sold at the University Store on Fifth)
  • One additional Ethernet cable (sold at the University Store on Fifth)

    Note: A crossover cable must be used instead of a normal Ethernet cable if neither of the adapters connected between the computer and the console are a Gigabit Ethernet Controller. Crossover cables are rarely needed. An additional USB Ethernet adapter may be needed if the console does not have one natively built-in.

Before You Get Started

1. Ensure the Ethernet cable is connected from the wall network port to the computer.

2. Plug the USB Ethernet adapter into an available USB port on the computer.

3. Make sure the console is off.

4. Connect the additional Ethernet cable from the USB Ethernet adapter to the network port on your gaming console.

Note: Some anti-virus programs may block necessary features for gaming consoles. CSSD recommends that all users install Symantec Endpoint Protection software and use the LiveUpdate feature to get the latest virus definitions. Symantec Endpoint Protection has been successfully tested with these gaming console instructions. Students, faculty, and staff can download Symantec Endpoint Protection at no cost through the Software Download Service at My Pitt.

Before installing Symantec Endpoint Protection, you must first uninstall any existing anti-virus software on your computer, including previous versions of Symantec Endpoint Protection. Additional information about installing and configuring Symantec Endpoint Protection for Windows is available.

    Connecting your Gaming Console to PittNet with a Mac

    Overview

    The following instructions can be used to configure your Mac computer to share the Internet connection in your residence hall room with a gaming console.

    Requirements

    • An Apple computer running Windows that is currently configured for wired PittNet
    • A USB Ethernet adapter (sold at the University Store on Fifth)
    • One additional Ethernet cable (sold at the University Store on Fifth)
      Note: A crossover cable must be used instead of a normal Ethernet cable if neither of the adapters connected between the computer and the console are a Gigabit Ethernet Controller. Crossover cables are rarely needed. An additional USB Ethernet adapter may be needed if the console does not have one natively built-in.

    Note for Apple Computers

    Internet Connection Sharing will not work on Mac OS X for trying to connect a gaming console to Pitt's network. A Boot Camp partition must be set up with Windows installed in order to connect an Apple computer. You can either:

    a. Use the link below to configure Boot Camp and Install Windows yourself. For this method, you will need to obtain a copy of Windows from the campus computing labs.

    b. Alternatively, contact the Technology Help Desk at 412-624-HELP [4357] or submit a request online to schedule an appointment to have a consultant assist you with setting up Boot Camp. For this method, the consultant will bring a copy of Windows to install on your computer.

    Once Boot Camp is set up and Windows is installed, continue with the instructions below.

    Before You Get Started

    1. Ensure the Ethernet cable is connected from the wall network port to the computer.

    2. Plug the USB Ethernet adapter into an available USB port on the computer.
