Quickstart

Step-by-step instruction Rommelnet

1. complete the application

When you move in you get the application from the caretaker. Alternatively you can get one from your useradmin or on this webpage. Make out the form completely, put it together with 15€ in a envelope(fee for one semester) and put it in the letterbox of your useradmin. A list of all user admins can be found on the noticeboard in your house or on this webpage.

2. wait for the processing of your data to finish

All the useradmins and admins work unsalaried and voluntary. Therefor you have to understand that it might take a while. Normally it should be done within one day, then you’ll find your logindata and instructions in your letterbox.

3. connect and configure your computer

If you don’t own a ethernetcable you can purchase one of ours for 1,50€. The useradmins should have some spares. If you have the needed ethernetcable and connected your computer you can connect it by using this manual.

It still doesn’t work!

Before you speak to your useradmin, check this homepage. In the FAQ you’ll find a lot of stuff that might safe you and the useradmin-team some time. Further help can be requested via mail: or a visit to your useradmin. Please consider that useradmins are just “normal” students too and need their sleep. ;)

When do I have to pay again?

The termpay for the Rommelnet needs to be payed at the beginning of every semester. So plaese pay every april and oktober. If you don’t pay we unfortunately will have to ban your useraccount on the 1 of May / November. The best thing to do is to put 15€ in a envelope, write your name and roomnumber on it and put it in your useradmins letterbox.
