1. General
Dear tenant:
This user manual will help you to configure your network access in your dorm
room. Please read this instruction for your operating system carefully. If problems
occur during the configuration, please read first our troubleshooting tips at the end
of this booklet. Contact our system administrator if the problem persists.
Please visit our website, where we publish current faults, planned maintenance of
our systems or changes in the office hours:

For the connection between your PC or laptop and the data socket in your dorm
(in most cases this is the left connection), an Ethernet network cable with RJ45
plug (see illustration) is needed. We recommend a cable of category 5e or higher.
This cable may be purchased for a few
euros in any electronics or computer
store. Once you have the cable
connected to your computer, please
follow the instructions for setting up the
network for your operating system on the
following pages.

In this booklet we have created exemplary instructions for three operating
systems. Please note that individual steps may vary for different versions of

5. Use of Routers / WLAN
We supported exclusively setting up your studNET access based on a wired
direct connection to the network socket (LAN).
Yet you have the option of multiple devices (smartphone, tablet, laptop) to
connect via a wireless router with the studNET.
An overview of the most important settings required (FAQ) on our website at the
following link:
http://www.studentenwerk-leipzig.de/studnet
We provide for the configuration and use of your router, no further advice or
technical support. The responsibility for all peripheral devices rests solely with the
user.
Please note also, that you are responsible for the security of your router itself
(insecure WLAN).
For any misuse of your connection, you can be held accountable.
6. Common mistakes
Before contacting our support team, please make sure that you have checked the
following steps:
1) You have your laptop / PC connected via cable directly to the data jack in
your room.
2) You have configured the network settings to DHCP functionality.
3) You have set the DHCP functionality on the correct network adapter
(not the wireless adapter e.g.).
4) You do not have defined a proxy server in your browser.
