Entertainment Device Registration

This article will help you register and connect Xbox, PS4, Apple TV, Internet Enabled TV, Roku, and other streaming devices on campus.

There are two ways to connect entertainment devices.

  1. Plugging it in to an Ethernet Port using an Ethernet cable.  This is will give the best performance.
  2. Connecting to a special hidden wireless network named game-stream .

Both methods require you to first register your device's wired or wireless MAC address (these are different), at registermydevice.olivet.edu

Need help locating your device MAC address? Use this guide.

Registering Entertainment Device:

    Connecting entertainment devices via Ethernet:

    • Connect your device to an Ethernet port. If you device is wireless only, please see instructions below.
    • Go to registermydevice.olivet.edu .  You need to be connected to the ONUnet network to access this site.
    • Log in using your ONUnet username and password (do not include @olivet.edu for the username). 
    • Create a Device.  Add your device's wired MAC address along with other required information. (note: each device will have a unique MAC address for both for its wireless and wired connection if applicable)

     

    Connecting entertainment devices via wireless to our special hidden wireless network named game-stream:

    • Please locate your device's Wireless Mac Address, (Please note that you must locate the wireless MAC address and not the Wired MAC address. Many devices have a wired and wireless MAC Address, please make sure to use the Wireless MAC address, in this case.) If you need help locating your MAC Address please follow our guide here
    • Once you locate your Wireless MAC Address, go to registermydevice.olivet.edu . (You need to be connected to the ONUnet network to access this site.)
    • Log in using your ONUnet username and password (do not include @olivet.edu for the username). 
    • Create a Device. Add your device's wireless MAC address along with other required information. (note: each device will have a unique wireless MAC address) 
    • After you register your device, please wait 1 full hour before trying to connect your device, since it can take up to 1 hour for the device to be fully registered.
    • Connect your device to a special hidden wireless network named game-stream.  You will not see this wireless network in the list. You have to connect to other and type in game-stream manually. Security should be set to None. No Password

     

    Connecting a computer via Ethernet cable:

    • Enter your ONUnet username and password if prompted the first time you connect.

    I don't have enough Ethernet ports in my room?  You may purchase and use an Ethernet switch.  Note: Make sure you do not purchase a Router.  Routers will not work and often cause problems for others.
