Video Game Systems

Most game and media systems are able to connect to a UWW-MEDIASYSTEMS SSID.

Steps to Connect:

1. Get the MAC address from the device you wish to connect to the internet. The MAC address can be found on the settings page under about or under network settings.

2. Go the the My Devices website using the same log in as your campus email account. Click "Add" and enter the MAC address and description of what you are trying to register. It will say pending after you register this.

3. On your device, go to the network option and manually set up your network by entering the network name, which is UWWPlay. It may ask you to connect to "Hidden Network". Enter "UWWPlay" as the network name or SSID without quotes. The network name is case sensitive. This network does not need a password and if asked about security settings, select "none." Your device should now connect to the internet!

4. If you still have problems, please contact ResNET(262-472-3233, resnet@uww.edu).

PLEASE NOTE: This new system uses signature-based detection to prevent normal computers or unknown devices from connecting to the UWWPlay SSID.  That means that signatures may change when companies update software on game or media systems.  For example, XBOX is very close to a Windows 8 PC so sometimes it could change towards a Windows 8 profile and we may have to ask iCIT to make an adjustment to the profile.  Some devices may not be recognized by the system so it will be important to contact ResNET so they can categorize it and forward the information along.
