Entertainment Device Registration

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

NOTE - Personal wireless printers are not compatible with any of our networks. Please connect directly to a personal printer via USB.  Keep in mind that only gaming and streaming devices need to be registered.  Smartphones and computers, both desktop and laptop versions, can connect directly and should not be registered on this page.

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

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 if you plan to connect wirelessly.) 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 will have to chose Other and type in game-stream manually. Security should be set to None and there is NO password

     

    Connecting a computer via Ethernet cable:

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

    Sharing AppleTV:

    • Use a wired connection.
    • When registering the wired MAC address at registermydevice.olivet.edu, check the Enable AirGroup box and enter the ONUnet usernames of others to allow them to connect to your AppleTV.

    What if 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.
