CaneNet is the University of Miami’s wired student network available in the Residential Colleges and the University Village. Ethernet ports in every room provide fast and reliable Internet connections for those students living in these residential communities. Students with a valid CaneID and password can easily authenticate and use this service to surf the Internet, check email, and much more from their room. All that is needed is a computer with an Ethernet port – or Ethernet adapter (such as a Thunderbolt) – and an Ethernet cable.

Devices that are not capable of authenticating – such as gaming consoles, televisions, and streaming devices – will need to be registered via the Network Device Registration Portal. Instructions on how to register those devices can be found here: DIY Networking.
