NetReg is the process by which students register their computers on the UConn network at the start of every academic year. It is mandatory for all students, and is done so that the university can maintain a database of which computers belong to which students, for purposes of monitoring bandwidth, etc.
When initially connecting and registering, connect directly to the wall; do not use a router.
Usually, the NetReg page will be displayed automatically the first time you open a browser. If it is not, simply go to http://netreg.uconn.edu. Click the "register" link on the main page. On the next page, input your NetID and password, agree to abide by the laws and university policies, and click the "Register Me" button. Restart your computer, and you should be all set!
