Connecting Gaming or Print Devices to RezNet

There are steps you need to take before you can connect your gaming devices (eg Xbox) or streaming devices (eg Apple TV) or printers to residence WiFi if you are not using a USB cable.

Plugging in with a network cable is always preferred if possible as there is no extra setup required by you, and you’ll get a faster more reliable connection.

If you must connect your device to WiFi:

You must first register the device’s wireless MAC address. Once that's done, you can connect the device to Reznet-Guest.

  1. You must first find the MAC address of your device 
  2. Once you've got your MAC address, REGISTER YOUR DEVICE here: www.trentu.ca/it/registerdevice​
  3. You will see a "Create AirGroup Device Dialog Screen"
    • The device name can be anything you like, but it will be visible to anyone you share it with. 

    • Enter the MAC address in the box at the bottom

  4. Click register
