Connecting Media or Gaming Devices on Campus (including ResNet)

You must register your personal computer, router, gaming or media device before connecting to ResNet.

Registering Media or Gaming Devices

Do not connect laptops, tablets or other devices with Web browsers to UB Gaming.

If you are using a router, register the router as a computer and then connect the gaming console or media device to it without registering the gaming console or media device. Only follow these steps if you intend to connect your gaming console or media device directly to the Ethernet port on the wall.

 

To register a media or gaming device connected directly to the network (not using a router):

  1. Connect your media or gaming device to the Internet using either:
    • UB Gaming Wi-Fi, or
    • ResNet connection plugged directly to the Ethernet port on the wall
  2. Connect your already registered computer (not your media or gaming device) to the Internet using either:
    • UB Secure Wi-Fi, or
    • ResNet connection plugged directly to the Ethernet port on the wall
  3. Open your computer's Web browser.
  4. Go to the ResNet registration screen for media or gaming devices at http://128.205.250.6/registration.
  5. Follow the directions listed on the registration screen to register the media or gaming device, such as ReplayTV, Apple TV, Roku, Amazon Fire TV or XBox,  for ResNet.
  6. Disconnect and then reconnect your media or gaming device either to UB Gaming Wi-Fi or ResNet wired Ethernet
