Game Consoles and More

Overview

Game Consoles
In order to use your Game Console in the dorms, it will need to be registered on UST’s network.  To register your game console, please review the instructions below on how to find the MAC address for your game console. Then, fill out the form at the bottom of this page to request that IRT register your console in our system. Once your request has been received, it may take up to 24 hours for your console to be registered on the network.

NOTE: Unfortunately, the Nintendo Wii can not connect to the network via WiFi connection due to the data rate speeds it requires. There are wired adapters available through sites like Amazon for purchase to help residents still be able to use their device through a wired ethernet connection. By using a wired ethernet connection, it will help improve gaming performance for all individuals on the network. 

Personally Owned Wireless Printers
IRT does not recommend personal wireless printers in the dorms because they interfere with the dorm wireless network.  We recommend purchasing a printer with a wired (USB) connection.  Printers that are connected directly via USB will not need to be registered on UST’s network.

Roku Boxes, Internet TVs, BluRay Players, Google Chromecast and other Streaming Devices
Please note, at this time, Roku Boxes and Chromecast do not consistently work with UST’s network authentication system.   For this reason, we do not recommend that you bring these devices to campus.

Because of the great diversity of products that now have wireless streaming capabilities, it is impossible for IRT to provide device-specific instructions for obtaining a MAC address from such devices. Please consult the user manual that came with your device. There may also be instructions on the manufacturer's website .
