Q. Why are there no ethernet ports in Reiners Hall?
The Trine Board and Cabinet decided that going forward all newly constructed or rennovated residence halls would be Wifi only. A Wireless Access Point has been placed near every several rooms to accommodate up to four devices per student. Some devices may need firmware or software updates, and the Help Desk can assist as much as it is able. With some manufacturers or hardware limitations, like your Ethernet-only smart TV, there are limitations.
Is your smart TV able to use a USB WiFi Adapter if it does not have WiFi built in?
