ResNet - DSL Modems

Only 1 modem per room is necessary, not per student. Each DSL Modem has Ethernet ports allowing up to 4 devices to be connected.

Modems are due back at the Library the Friday before Commencement and are subject to replacement charges of $80 if not returned.

Note – If a student changes room, the modem must be checked out to the roommate remaining in the room or the roommate must check out another modem.
