How do I get started?

This page should help you get started with the internet connection included in your student apartment. You need a working Network Interface card in your computer.

  1. Connect the network cable to the internet socket in your apartment.
  2. Ensure that your computer is configured to recieve an IP-address automatically, also known as DHCP. Most computers are already configured to do this.
  3. Start your web browser and go to the address http://hemma.sgsstudentbostader.se
  4. You will be redirected to a page where you can register your connection.
  5. Complete the registration process.

Your computer is most likely already configured to recieve an IP-address automatically. If your computer does not have this option set, you can follow one of the guides listed below to adjust the settings in your computer.

Linux (Gnome)
Mac OS X
Windows XP
Windows Vista
Windows 7

If you have a broadband router

NOTE If you have a broadband router, you must configure the WAN / Internet port to obtain IP address automatically. In most cases, you reach the broadband interface by visiting: http://192.168.1.1 or http://192.168.0.1. The correct address is listed in the user manual.
