If you have never registered your device before

There are two options when it comes to registering your device for wired or wireless.

  1. Bring your device along with power cable and any controllers or remotes down to ResNet. We will then register you for either wired, wireless, or both. Estimated Time: 10 min.
  2. Email the following information to
    • A clear photograph or screenshot of your device’s MAC address
    • The MAC Address written into the email (optional but appreciated)
    • Your name
    • HuskyMail address
    • Building/Room/Phone #
    • Type of Device to Be Registered
    • Whether you want the device to be registered for wireless, wired, or both
If you have registered in a past semester

If you have registered in a past semester, and this is the same device as one previously registered, you only need to go to the registration student portal at and hit “register” next to the entry for your console.

The MAC address will always be twelve characters consisting only of the letters A-F and the numbers 0-9, separated by “:” or “-” into six groups of two, e.g. 00:AA:BB:11:22:CC or 0A:1B:2C:3D:4E:5F
