Each Student is provided with a 100Mbps link to their room via network port. Ports are marked with arrows passing each other. Make sure you do not plug into the phone port. It is on the same wall mount so don't get confused.

There is one port per student. However in some rooms there are only two ports to service 3 people or one port may not work. If this is the case you can check out a 5-port switch from the business office. This switch needs to be turned in at the end of the year, and if not returned your account will be charged $40.
