How to connect to the Internet

  1. Prepare your citizen ID or ISIC. Remember the number of your room. Take with you all devices you want to connect to the Internet (beside Desktop Computer, for it you only need to bring it´s MAC address.).
  2. If you do not have an internet cable, or if its damaged or short, make an estimate on the length of a cable you need for your room and bring the old one with you. If necessary, you will be given new cable.
  3. Now you need to go to the ´´televizor´´ a person handling registrations and problems dealing with internet connection. List of the televizors, their email addresses and numbers of their rooms are on board opposite to the main entrance of each block.
  4. Televizor will register and create account on our system Hydra. You will then receive an email with password which you can change. The ID from this account will serve as the variable symbol (VS) for payment. He will give you short explanation about the rules of the academical net. You will receive free internet for 10 days. In a span of these 10 days you should pay for it, otherwise it will stop working until you pay.

Connection to the net via cable (Ethernet)

No other steps are needed. Just put the cable in already registered device. You can only connect one device on cable. If you want more than one device, you need to write email to televizor.

WiFi

Currently working on blocks: B,C,D,E,F, in Pod-O-Gym and around our Mensa (canteen)

It is possible to register up to three devices one for every category. Categories are PC, smartphone, tablet etc. It is possible to ask Net Administrator (Televizor) for an exception if you have good reason. Other informations you may find here: Interní předpis IP3/2017.

Registration process is same as the registration for a cable.

To set the second password used for wi-fi connection, follow these steps:

  1. Open //hydra.pod.cvut.cz
  2. Use your username and generated password to log in (you can find it in the email you received after registration with televizor)
  3. Navigate to “Network” tab
  4. Find red button with “Set new password” label and username above (This is your WiFi password, different from the one from email)
  5. Try to log in with the username (case-sensitive!) and the newly set password. If it doesn’t work, wait for cca 30 minutes and try again.
