Game Systems

As of March 11th, 2013 residential students are able to register game consoles and media devices themselves here. This page is also available in BraveWeb via the "Manual Device Enrollment" link. Students will have to verify their credentials and agree to the “acceptable use policy” on a screen similar to the one below.

After pressing “submit”, users will be presented with a screen where they must specify their MAC or physical adapter address, and the type of device submitted. (The address will be six pairs of letters and numbers separated by dashes i.e., 00-0F-FE-40-99-74.) Key in the MAC address without the hyphens. You may also be presented with an option to provide contact information, for automatic notification of when device enrollment will be complete.

NOTE: The console or device must already be connecting to the network via the appropriate Ethernet or wireless connection before performing this step. Otherwise, the system will not accept the MAC Address. For information on connecting to the wireless, see the next section.

It is important that you specify the wireless MAC address of your device if you plan on using your device wirelessly, and provide the wired MAC address if you plan on using your device over wired Ethernet.

When all relevant information has been entered, click "Enroll Device". Up to ten devices can be added and managed this way.

Wireless

UNCP has a special wireless network meant for game consoles and other devices without a browser. This network is invisible and will not automatically appear. Prior to enrolling the device for wireless use, users must add the following information to the console or device to connect.

SSID: uncpgamenet
WEP Key: 1111111111111

With the device connecting to this wireless network, it can be enrolled on the Manual Device Enrollment page, as explained above.
