Connecting Gaming Consoles and Smart TVs to the ASU Network
Some Gaming Devices and Smart TVs may connect to the Wireless Network using ASU-Visitor. For a more reliable connection, we highly recommend connecting any of these devices using an Ethernet Cable. The device must be registered on the ASU network in order to gain a secure Ethernet connection.
For a list of what devices can be registered, visit https://faq.appstate.edu/answers/registerable-and-non-registerable-devices.
Steps for registering your Gaming Device or Smart TV:
- Connect an Ethernet cable to the device and to the port in the wall
- Locate the Wired/LAN MAC address for your device (Can be found in the System Settings or Network Settings)
- Submit a support request for personally owned devices. Be sure to include the device MAC address and your residence hall in the support request. Click Here to submit a support request.
You will recieve an email notification when your device has been registered and admitted onto the network. If you have additional questions, please contact our IT Support Center at 828-262-8324 option 2.
