Smart TVs, streaming devices, and game consoles may be registered via MAC (Physical) address at the game registration page.  Students and staff are able to register 5 devices on the network.  Once you reach the device limit you will need to open a support ticket with the MAC address or device name.  Someone in the OIS department will remove the device from your profile.


Step 1 - Connect the device to the internet.  If you are connecting over Wi-Fi please use the HU wireless network and HarrisburgU as the password.


Step 2 - Once connected you can follow the instruction on the game console registration page.


Please use the MAC address for the correct adapter on the device.  For example, wireless Ethernet cards have a different MAC address then a wired ethernet port. For help with finding your MAC address please view the page here.  You may need to refer to your device manual for help finding the MAC address. 


If you are connecting via an ethernet cable, please see this link: Ethernet Ports in Residence Halls : Harrisburg University IT Helpdesk


If you get the error "The given address does not appear to be valid for a Gaming Device", please submit a ticket with your full MAC address and device type.
