How will I know if a computer is compatible with the NMH network?

The news is good: nearly all computers sold today, and within the past several years, will work well on the NMH network. NMH's network uses the same kinds of connections that home broadband networks do, so any computer designed for that environment should work well here. NMH supplies network connections to its student dorms, classrooms, and library. Computers must meet certain basic specifications to be compatible with the network. Most computers from electronics and office-supply stores will be sufficient. We recommend a Windows or Apple laptop with these minimum specifications:

  • 2GHz Intel or AMD processor
  • 4 gigabytes of RAM minimum
  • 80 gigabyte hard drive
  • Wired 10/100-baseT Ethernet adapter or better
  • Windows 7 or higher or Mac OS 10.8 or higher

  • Wireless

    Wireless networks exist in all academic and residential buildings.
