Nework Device Assignment
Beginning in the Fall of 2011 EMCC has redesigned how it assigns devices owned by students on its dorm network. By default all devices used within the student dorms will require students to authenticate through a captive portal regardless of its connection mechanism (wired or wireless). The IT Department is aware that this may cause problems used by students who reside on campus; and as such, will make exemptions for certain devices that currently include:
- Microsoft XBox’s – Find MAC: http://www.technipages.com/xbox-360-find-mac-address.html
- Sony PlayStation’s – Find MAC: http://www.technipages.com/ps3-find-mac-address.html
- Nintendo Wii’s – Find MAC: http://www.technipages.com/wii-find-mac-address.html
If you have one of these devices and would like to be able to use it on campus you must ensure the device is set to obtain its ip address, default gateway and dns settings automatically. In addition you must ensure that your device does not have any PPoE or PPTP settings applied to it. If you have satisfied these conditions then you may complete the form at the bottom of this page; once filled out, the IT Department will process your request and inform you by email when your request has been completed. If you are unsure how to obtain the required information or check your current settings for your device you will need to consult your products documentation for further instructions.
Please note this form is ONLY for gamming or other dvd/entertainment consoles, you do not need to register your computer or other web browser enabled devices.
PLEASE NOTE THAT YOUR DEVICE MUST BE CONNECTED TO A WIRED NETWORK CONNECTION, YOUR DEVICE WILL NOT WORK WITH WIRELESS!
Please note that any addresses or other information that has been assigned to you for your equipment is for your use only, sharing or other use of the assigned resources may result in immediate termination of use on the college’s network as outlined in the student handbook and/or other college policies. Please note if additional data ports are needed in your dorm room then you are permitted to have a data switch; however, the installation, activation or use of any unofficial wireless router, access points or any router of any kind is expressly prohibited and may result in the loss and termination of all user access on the colleges network.
