  1. Plug in machine to your assigned network port. The port should go up and you should obtain an IP address (149.151.x.x). If you are unable to obtain an IP address, please report the problem to ResNet or fill in the smartphone mobile Report a Problem form so that they can verify your network jack connectivity.
