Connect to DukeNet
Types of connections
Duke's campus has wired Ethernet connectivity throughout residence halls, libraries, academic and administrative buildings, research labs and many classrooms. The standard connection speed is 100Mbps (Fast Ethernet), though 1000Mbps (Gigabit Ethernet) is selectively available in academic and research buildings.
Note that each dorm room has one activated Internet/network (Ethernet) connection. If you need a second Ethernet connection activated, contact the OIT Service Desk.
Wireless network access is available throughout Duke's residence halls and academic and administrative buildings. Outdoor coverage is provided at the Bryan Center Pavilion, Duke Gardens and Krzyzewskiville.
Faculty, staff and students can connect to Duke's network from off-campus via home broadband, or across the Internet through a Virtual Private Network connection.
Types of services
DukeReg enables self-service of host registrations on the Duke network, including updates to DNS names, DHCP configuration, static/dynamic IP addressing and more.
Duke is now using network address translation (NAT) on the wireless and Resnet networks to make better use of the limited number of public IP addresses available to us.
