(ResNet) Connecting Devices

Connecting Devices

It is possible to connect your internet ready game consoles or Network Media Players to the Residential Network to play online games or stream stows on Hulu or Netflix. Each of these devices has a hardware address that must be registered with ResNet for the device to have access to the network.

You will need to provide your own Ethernet cable, which can be purchased at the OSU Beaver Store. Please note that a phone cable will not work for the ResNet network. See pictures of the two types of cables.

To register devices (wired):

  1. Go to to https://app.uhds.oregonstate.edu/resdesk/
  2. Click on 'Register a Device' under 'Self-Service' to the left
  3. Find your MAC address? for the device ('How to' table here)
  4. Put in the MAC address and Computer Name(such as:xbox, ps4, laptop, tacos), then register the device.
  5. Reboot your device and test the connection
    1. Some devices may need to be unplugged during the reboot process
