Wired Access


Wired network and the Internet access at York  comes in two types: public access Ethernet jacks, which require your Passport York username and password to log in (you may know this as YorkNet); and direct connection, typically using a static or dynamic IP address service known as Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP).

How do I get it?


LAN Drop

High speed network access with static IP address is available via Ethernet jacks in select locations at York.

  • Direct connection to the York network intended for specific hardware; no login required
  • Request LAN Drops from your local IT Support Group.
  • If you do not have an IT Support Group, submit a request.
  • LAN Drop Ethernet jacks are usually blue.
  • To apply for an IP address please submit the online IP address request form.
