How to connect using an Ethernet cable for the first time
Whilst it may seem old-fashioned, Ethernet remains by far the fastest, most stable and most secure method of connecting to the internet, and we especially recommend it for the best experience when streaming or online gaming.
Handily, it's the work of a couple of minutes to get online in this way:
Step 1 - Acquire an Ethernet cable
Your accommodation provider may be able to give you one - check with the front desk.
If not, these are inexpensive and readily available on the highstreet.
Step 2 - Connect the cable to the wall module
Be careful when plugging in the cable - don't put it in upside down! There is a plastic release clip that will click into place.
Step 3 - Connect the cable to your device
The link lights on the device's port should start flickering to indicate connectivity.
Step 4 - Open your preferred browser
