ResNet registration process

At the beginning of each semester, all residents in student housing are required to register their computer with CINS to receive network access. The database that holds this information is cleared out, and all students (old and new) will be redirected to the registration web site on their first attempt to browse the web. After completing the registration process, the resident's internet access will be enabled within 30 minutes. In some cases, a reboot is necessary after the 30 minute time period
