Game Consoles and Media Streaming

Game consoles and media streaming devices (Chromecast, Fire TV, Roku, AppleTV) are allowed on the campus network, and must be used wirelessly in the residence halls. Your device must be registered before you can use it.

  • Locate the wireless hardware address of your game console or media device (e.g. 1a:2b:3c:4d:5e:6f). The hardware address for most devices appears on a label on the outside, or in the device settings. If you have difficulty locating the hardware address, consult the manufacturer’s website for more information.
  • Visit using your computer, phone, or other connected device.
  • Register your game console or media streaming device using the hardware address and your UMassD Logon username and password.
  • Power your device off. Wait a minimum of 15 minutes for the network settings to take effect before powering it on again.
  • Use your device settings to connect to the CorsairWiFi wireless network. Your console or streaming device will stay registered for the duration of the academic year.
