Nintendo Wii - The wireless network card on this device uses older technology and will not work on our wifi network. But the device should work fine on our wired network. If your dorm room has a network jack on the wall, then you'll just need an ethernet cable and an adapter in order to plug it in. This Google search for the adapter may help.
Playstation 3 - The wireless network card on this device uses older technology and will not work on our network. But the device will work fine as long as it's plugged into a network jack.
NOTE: Starting Fall 2022, Ethernet will no longer be supported in any of the residence halls so internet will not be supported on both the Nintendo Wii and PS3.
Other Devices - Manufacturers are coming out with more network-enabled devices all the time. Our kitchen has wifi ovens. We even registered a wifi fan for a student. If you have a network-enabled device that's new to the market or that you're just unsure of, please contact us for assistance.
