How To Register Game Systems, Smart TVs, etc. on the Campus Network

In addition to traditional devices like laptops and smartphones, you can also connect game systems, smart TVs, Amazon Echos, Google Homes, and streaming video players to the Internet in your Residence Hall room, provided you adhere to all College policies and operate the device in such a way that it does not interfere with the operation of the College's network.

Devices with Web Browsers 

If the device has a web browser, open the browser and visit to complete the registration process. 

Devices without Web Browsers

If the device does not have a browser, complete the Device Registration form to register on the network.

In order to use the registration form you will required to provide the MAC address of the device. This is a 12 digit number (usually separated by “:” or “-“) that contains numbers 0-9 and/or letters A-F.

For most smart TVs the MAC address can be found in the network settings, or general information area of the menu system of the TV. 

Amazon Echos and Google Homes are great devices that will work on the SNC network. However you may not be able to find the MAC Address by using the apps associated with the devices. For assistance with these devices please come to the Service Desk (Cof 119). 

Most game systems will also work fine on the SNC Network provided they are registered using the Device Registration Form.

NOTE: Nintendo Wii and Playstation 3 will have issues connecting to the SNC Network via WiFi as their network cards are older and do not support our network. To use these devices online, they will need to be plugged in using an Ethernet cord.
