This document describes how to connect your laptop computer to the network at
the Copenhagen
Business School (CBS). The document is written and maintained by the ITAdvisors. You can find
contact information on how to reach us at the URL:
Our hopes are that this document itself will enable you to set up your laptop, so
please read this guide thoroughly before you contact us for help. Of course we’ll
be happy to help clear up uncertainties or hear from you, if you find any
inconsistencies with this document.
Please note that while we’ve done our best to create this guide, we’re not usually
able to assist in setting up your laptop computer personally. If you want to
connect your laptop to the network at CBS you’re doing so at your own risk,
though there shouldn’t be a whole lot.
That being said, let’s get on with the actual guide on how to set up your laptop.
