Registering your computer devices can be done via the device's web browser upon first connecting to BNL's network. However, the registration process will require that all guests have an active BNL account. If none is available, a temporary username and password can be generated and sent to the guest via a text message to their mobile device, which can be used to register their devices.

Note, registered devices will be able to access BNL's Wireless Network for two weeks. Please contact your event coordinator if your devices require the registration to last longer.

For Guests who Cannot Receive Text Messages - If guests do not have the ability to get text messages or cannot receive text messages on their mobile devices, because they are in buildings or other spots on campus without a strong wireless signal where they are unable to receive the text, then a event coordinator can create a temporary username and password them.

The event coordinator will be considered the point of contact for all temporary user accounts they create.

Note, this username and password combination will only work for 48 hours, so please tell your guest to log in to register their devices as soon as possible. Registered devices will be able to access BNL's Wireless Network for two weeks.

If you still experience issues, please contact your event coordinator for assistance.
