Computer Access

Three computer terminals are located in Berkner Hall (Bldg. 488) for internet access or accessing your email. You may also use the local network jacks to connect your own laptop as well.

If attendees bring laptops, tablets, smartphones, etc. that will require internet access during the conference, then these devices must be registered in BNL's Network Access Registration database in order to access the internet.

Show Access Instructions

Registering your computer device can be done via the device's web browser upon first connecting to BNL's network; however, the registration process will require a BNL life or guest number.

If you do not have a BNL-assigned life or guest number, a specially generated conference key will be provided to you on the first day of the conference. This conference key is only valid during the actual days of the conference. Please use this conference key in place of the BNL-assigned life or guest number.

Note: Only computers running Windows 7 and higher will be able to get internet access. Attendees will only have 15 minutes to complete their computer registration. Computers will be blocked if registration is not complete in time. Please make sure you understand the process before starting or ask for assistance.

If you have the conference key for your conference and still experience connection problems, please contact the ITD Helpdesk (www.bnl.gov/itd/helpdesk/) (631.344.5522, itdhelp@bnl.gov) for assistance.
