If you just got a new rental computer there are a few things to keep in mind:
How to start using the computer?
First time you login to the computer it is important that you are on the UI network.
The following you only need to do the first time you login while on the University network.
- Turn the computer on
- Choose the “globe” in the bottom right corner
- Find “eduroam” on the list of wireless connections and choose "connect"
- Type your email (username with @hi.is)
- Type your Ugla password and click OK
- Choose “Other user” in the bottom left corner
- Type your username and password
Now your computer is connected and ready for use.
You don't need to be on the UI network for future logins.
