Some networks managed by us are only accessible for registered computers.
Visit our DHCP-Webpage and follow the instructions. The following documents describe what you need to do to get access and why we insist on this annoyance:
Registrations expire 45 days after the last usage of the computer in our network.
Machines registered to you can also be directly reactivated on https://registration.phys.ethz.ch/.
All computers which receive their IP address from our DHCP servers are automatically registered in the dynamic DNS under the name hostname.dhcp.phys.ethz.ch. This allows you to connect to your computer using this name instead of its dynamic IP address.
Several wireless networks are provided by the Informatikdienste. You can access eth with your n.ethz account1). Alternatively you can connect to the public wireless which gives you access to all ETH webpages. You may then use VPN to access all the internet. See how to use VPN for more details. Lastly, you can connect to the eduroam network with your ETHZ email address and n.ethz password, or any other eduroam member credentials.
If you have a visitor for only a couple of days who needs to access the wireless or VPN, you can create a day guest account.
All computers connecting to a network on ETH campus are submitted to the security policies. This includes that the computers must be free of any viruses/malware/bots and that the access to the network can be blocked if those requirements are not fulfilled.
