Gaming Consoles

Gaming consoles can be registered on the OWU residential (wired) network or the BishopGuest wireless network by emailing their MAC address (the physical address of the console’s network card–please specify whether it’s wired or WiFi) along with the student’s name and ID number to helpdesk@owu.edu.

We strongly recommend using a wired connection if you have access to it. The following do not have wired access: Stuyvesant Hall, Austin Manor, 123 Oak Hill (Honors House), 4 Williams, 23 Williams (Bigelow-Reed House), 35 Williams.

Connecting Gaming Consoles to the OWU Wireless Network

The current generation of gaming systems do not support 802.1x enterprise security, therefore you cannot register them on the BishopNet wireless network. They can, however, be registered on the BishopGuest network, although they must be registered by Information Services. To do so, the WiFi MAC address must be sent tohelpdesk@owu.edu along with your student username.
