ResNet - Registering a Gaming System and Other Devices

Follow the steps to register your gaming system or other device.

All networking devices must be registered with their wired connection to gain access to the network/internet. Please complete the following steps:

  1. To manually register a gaming system (Xbox, PlayStation...etc), fill out the Network Device Registration Form.
  2. If you have not registered a computer/router to your room, you will have to successfully pass the Copyright Quiz at this time. See ResNet - Obtaining a ResNet Account for your Computer or Personal Wireless Router for instructions.
  3. For the Registration process, you will need to provide your MAC address for your gaming system. Steps to find the MAC Address can be found here.
  4. For other devices such as TVs, bluray, AppleTv...etc, please consult the owners manual to find the wired MAC or Physical Hardware Address.
