Gaming Devices at UIS

Live Help

ITS is proud to announce the ability to connect to the UIS wireless network via your Xbox, Playstation, Nintendo-DS, and other devices that do not use standard Enterprise Wireless Encryption.

Students can register up to 5 devices to access the wireless network.

To begin registering your devices go to:

  1. Open the PreAuth Login Page
  2. Login in with your NetID and Password
  3. Once you have logged in, type the MAC Address of your device
    [Directions to find the MAC Address of most devices can be found lower in page.]
  4. Then in the drop down list select your device or select Other and fill in what type of device you are registering.
  5. Next fill in your Phone Number and click Save
    [NOTE: Once you have saved your configuration you will not be able to use the device on the network until the next hour. Example: If you register your device
    at 1:10PM you will not be able to use your device on the network until after 2:00PM.]
  6. Register any other devices using steps 2 through 5 and when you are done click LogoutGaming Device Registration Page
  7. After registering your devices through the registration page go to the wireless connections on your device and connect to the wireless network preauth. Again you will not be able to connect until the top of the next hour.

Finding your MAC Address

The MAC Address may also be referenced as the wireless physical adapter and will look something like this: 01:23:45:67:89:0a

These are typical devices that you will need to register however there may other devices that will need to be registered through this system. The Wii will not work with UIS’s wireless network, as the Wii will only transmit at data rates of 1 to 2 Mbps, and UIS’s campus wireless network generally supports much higher speeds. Enabling the lower Wii data rates detrimentally affects other wireless users, and as a result, UIS’s wireless network does not support connecting at the lower data rates required by Wii. Please use a Wii LAN adapter to connect to UIS’s wired network.
