Network & Connectivity
Housing Wireless Network Connection
Access to the BYU Network and Internet is provided in select residences (* See Matrix below) through a wireless network connection. The BYU network uses an 802.11 a/g/n protocol. Note: 802.11b is NOT supported. This means that devices which rely on the B protocol, such as older model game consoles and some wireless printers, will not work.
Access to the BYU network and Internet is provided through a wired Ethernet network connection in select residences (* See Matrix below).
Each select residence (* See Matrix below) also includes either an IPTV or Cable Television (CATV) connection. If an IPTV connection is provided, only IPTV is available over this connection. IPTV may be viewed on a computer at no cost or on a television with the use of a BYU set top box which may be rented from OIT. IPTV is not available over a wireless network connection.
Access to Analog Phone Service is provided in select residences (* See Matrix below). Rooms in these residences have local telephone and caller ID service. Residents are required to provide their own telephone and/or caller ID unit if they wish to use them. Most analog telephones should work but only the models which are sold in the BYU Bookstore have been tested and found compatible by OIT.
