Register on the EGR Network

Steps for Network Bouncer Registration

The following procedure can be used to register any device on the EGR network.

Please read the procedure and make sure you understand it completely before continuing. Contact the DECS Support Office if you have any questions or concerns.

  1. Verify that you have the appropriate network cables, cards, etc.
  2. Verify your system(s) network settings. Make sure each system is configured to use DHCP (the Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol). See How to Switch a Computer to Use DHCP for instructions on switching to DHCP for several operating systems.
  3. Connect your device to the network by enabling the wireless connection or connect your computer to a wall jack with an Ethernet cable.
  4. Open a web browser. You will be redirected to this website: http://dhcp.egr.msu.edu that will walk you through the rest of the registration process.

During the registration process, you will be given the option to register in one of four ways:

Registering with an EGR NetID

Best used for long term use by members of the engineering community.

Prerequisite: You must have a valid EGR NetID and password.

Registering with a MSU NetID

Used for members of the larger MSU community, but without an EGR NetID.

Prerequisite: You must have a valid MSU NetID and password.

Sponsored Registration

Visitors to engineering that have a staff or faculty member sponsor can register their devices on the engineering network without and EGR or MSU NetID

Prerequisite: You must know the e-mail of your sponsor.

Guest Registration

Use this method if all you can provided is your own e-mail address (no EGR or MSU NetID nor a sponsor).

Prerequisite: You must have a valid e-mail address.
