How do I Register a Device on the Network?

Certain devices must be registered before they are allowed to connect to the EOU-Guest Wi-Fi network as well as certain wired network jacks throughout campus.

Preparation and Required Device Information

Certain information, specific to each device, is required for registration:

  • required: Find and record your device’s Wired and/or Wi-Fi MAC address.
    • Examples: 01-23-45-AB-CD-EF 00:CA:FE:C0:FF:EE
    • Each MAC address you register is considered a separate “device” by the network
  • required: Make sure your device is not connected to the EOU-Guest Wi-Fi network for 5-10 minutes after you complete registration. This ensures that the network will allow the device to fully connect after registration.
  • optional: Choose a descriptive, friendly, and easily readable name for your device.
    • Examples: xbox - Wi-Fi ps4 - wired
  • optional: Decide whether your device will need to be shared via AirGroup.
