This article will help you connect your laptop to Bren wifi using an ethernet cable at one of the hardware connection laptop stations.
- 1st floor library (2x)

To find the locations within each room, please look for this sign:
The cable you are looking for is purple with a white USB-C adapter attached and is labeled "Bren Wired Laptop Connection"
- Plug the ethernet cable into your laptop. The ethernet cable comes with a USB-C adaptor, which is currently the most common port type on laptops. Many laptops have an ethernet port - if this is your laptop, simply remove the adaptor and plug in the ethernet cable. If you do not have a USB-C or ethernet port, please feel free to contact us and we can advise you on what adaptor you will need.
- Turn off your wifi in your network preferences.
- You should be all good to utilize the hardwire connection!
