To access the Luther College network, a workstation must meet certain minimum requirements (up-to-date antivirus, and a fully patched operating system). College-owned computers should have already been registered on your behalf. To connect a non college-owned computer to the Luther College network, registration is required for full Internet access. If you only need short term, basic web access, you can connect to the LCGuest Wireless Network where registration only consists of consent to a terms and conditions.
Instructions for Registering on the Network
Successful Scan: If you see that the scan was successful you should be ready to use the internet. If you are redirected back to network.luther.edu, disconnect your ethernet/wireless connection and then reconnect.
Failed Scan: If your computer failed to pass the scan, you will need to resolve the listed problems in order to access the internet. Failed scans are most often due to anti-virus software and/or operating systems being out of date. To minimize the risk of failing, check to see if everything is up to date before running the scan. Refer to the troubleshooting section below to fully understand how to resolve the problem(s).
A computer may fail to be registered for any of the following reasons.
