Network

The network of ETH Zurich, both WLAN and wired network, are provided and maintained by IT Services of ETH Zurich (ITS).

How to Connect

For mobile devices using the wireless network of ETH is the most convenient.

In public rooms such as CAB F 31 or G 41 you can also connect laptops using a cable. UTP plugs there are configured for public docking.

D-INFK members can ask your IT Coordinator or isginf for a wired connection with a fixed IP address in their office.

Use VPN

For a secure connection when not at ETH we recommend to use VPN once you have established general internet connectivity, for instance at home, in a coffee shop or in a hotel.

Guests

Guests who only need wireless LAN (WIFI or WLAN) access can get free access to the internet for 24 hours. All that is needed is a mobile phone number to receive a text message with a validation code.

Conferences

For conferences where many users need WIFI access we recommend to order a group account for WIFI access, i.e., one login and password that you can hand out to all conference attendees.

To order such a login log in to http://idts.ethz.ch/hdweb, select Group account and fill in the form with the information of your conference.

Add a day or two before the start to test if everything works.

Telephony

The voice communication service (telephony) at ETH Zurich is exclusively operated by the ID ICT Networks division. Helpful hints you can find here.
