If you have a personal computer on campus, you can connect to network drives quite easily. It is a very similar process to mapping a drive on a campus computer. However, there are a few things to keep in mind:
- You must be connected to the Internet to map network drives. Normally you will be connected to UWECwirless. If you are in a dorm you will be connected to UWECreshall.
- When you specify the drive letter and type the path of the drive you wish to connect to, click Finish. You will then be asked to log in. Type in uwec\username (with "username" being your UWEC username) and your password.
Note: It is necessary to type uwec\ before your username. If you do not do this, you will be denied access to the network drive. Notice as you do this that the Domain changes to uwec.
- On the Desktop, right click My Computer » select Disconnect Network Drive...
On the Desktop, right click My Network Places » select Disconnect Network Drive...

- From the Disconnect Network Drive dialog box, select the drive you want to disconnect.
- Click OK.
