Computers used by non-academic members of the Department, e.g. spin-out companies, need to use the nonacad network service provided by the Department.

Connection instructions (wired)

Users of the nonacad network will need to contact the Computer Officers to arrange collection of the credentials that computers used by their company will need to connect to the network. The instructions for connecting are then the same as the instructions for connecting to the Department's wired ChemNet service, except that all references to "ChemNet credentials/username/password" should be replaced with the nonacad credentials provided.

Windows instructions

Linux instructions

OSX instructions

If you have devices that cannot be configured to authenticate to a network (e.g. many printers) please contact the Computer Officers who will make alternative arrangements to configure the network connection for the devices concerned.

Connection instructions (wifi)

Users with access to the nonacad network service can connect to the Department's nonacad wifi network. Windows users should download and run the nonacad wifi installer. If your computer does not immediately connect to the nonacad wireless network, open up the Wireless Network Connection box from your system tray and connect to nonacad. When you connect, you should see a pop-up telling you that "Additional information is needed to connect to nonacad". Click on the pop-up, and you will be asked for your user credentials; if you unsure of what to enter, please contact the Computer Officers.

If the nonacad wifi installer does not work, or if you have a device that does not run Windows, you should follow the instructions for connecting to the ChemNet wireless network with a few modifications:

  • The wifi network name to connect to is nonacad rather than ChemNet
  • All references to "ChemNet credentials/username/password" should be replaced with the nonacad credentials provided.
