In this case you will require an ethernet adapter that will plug in to your laptops USB/USB-C/Lightning port.

You are responsible for ensuring that your machine has up to date anti-virus software running and your OS (Operating System) and programs must be kept up to date with the latest updates and security patches. For devices running Windows 10, Windows Defender will be sufficient. For other operating systems or older versions of Windows, you can download the universities free anti-virus solution, McAfee here: https://help.uis.cam.ac.uk/service/security/antivirus. We would also recommend using an anti-malware program such as MalwareBytes.

You will need to register to connect to the wired network. When you connect to the ethernet port in your room you should be redirected to the registration page. If you are not, you can manually go to the registration page by goign to: https://register.sid.cam.ac.uk/members/.
