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, PDAs, etc. that will require internet access during the meeting, then these devices must be registered in BNL's Network Access Registration database in order to access the internet.

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 for your event will be provided to you by the event coordinator on the first day of the event. This conference key is only valid during the actual days of the event. Please use this conference key in place of the BNL-assigned life or guest number. If you have the conference key for your event and still experience connection problems, please contact the ITD Helpdesk for assistance.
