Device Registration for Gaming Consoles

You need your console's physical (MAC) address to begin the registration process.  To obtain it, make sure your game console is turned on, connected to the Ethernet (the network jack) in your residence room, and then follow the instructions below for your specific console. 

Every residence room has wall plates with Ethernet network jacks in them.  You will need an Ethernet cable to plug into the wall plate jack.  The blue Ethernet jack on the left should be active, if not try the blue Ethernet jack on the right.  If for some reason you’re not getting a connection please contact the Service Desk.
