It is possible to connect to the Whitman network through an ethernet connection. Such a connection is very fast and is good for desktop machines and laptops that are often in one location (such as a dorm room or office).
Connecting to the ethernet at Whitman is very easy. You only need a standard 8-wire ethernet cable (sold in the bookstore) which can connect your computer to any of the ethernet jacks across campus.
Note: You will need to make sure that your computer is registered before you can get internet access. For more information, see our registration guide.
