Register and Manage Internet-Ready Devices

In residence halls, internet-ready devices like smart TVs or other multimedia equipment are connected to the ecu-wifi network or the wired network as they are not supported by eduroam. You can register up to two internet-ready devices following these instructions to avoid daily authentication.

Add a New Device

Click the Add button on the Manage Devices screen and complete the registration form:

  1. Enter a name for your device (no special characters).
  2. Enter the device's MAC Address. This number is usually found near the device's serial number.
