Register your Gaming Device on the Wireless Gaming Network


Servicenet is a high speed, low latency wireless network, enhanced to improve gaming support on the campus wireless network. Servicenet also supports gaming features, such as Universal Plug and Play (UPnP).

Existing Gaming Device

If your gaming device is already registered on servicenet there is no additional action to take. If you experience any connectivity issues with your gaming device, simply restart it.

New Gaming Device

If you have a new device, which has never been on the wireless network, you must register it on the Network Record – Register form. In order to register a device, you will need to provide your device's MAC address. How to find a MAC address.
