Can I connect more than one device to my StuNet connection?

Currently, you can only register one computer with the StuNet.

There are several ways you can get another device online. Either you set up a hotspot with your registered computer or you buy yourself a hardware router to share the network connetion with other devices.

For switching to a router take a look on our setup recommendations and list of exemplary router models and also how to change your device.

How do I unsubscribe from StuNet?

This will be done automatically for you one year after moving out. For more information please refer to our information page "Signing up and off".

Sending Email fails. Why?

The university blocks outgoing SMTP connections (port 25) to all mail servers except their own smtp.tu-freiberg.de. You can use this server for your outgoing mail. Alternatively, you may use port 58 or turn on SSL which uses port 465.
