Roku

Game consoles and media streaming devices are made to be compatible with consumer network configurations such as your standard home wireless router. These devices do not support WPA2 Enterprise, which is the network type UVM wireless uses. Therefore, they are unable to connect wirelessly on campus. However, game consoles and media devices are able to connect via an Ethernet cable to the data port located in your reshall room. All you need to do is submit a Network Registration Request Form at www.uvm.edu/techteam/playonline.

Below are instructions for finding your Roku’s MAC address.

1. Ensure that you have a compatible Roku player with an Ethernet port.  The Roku 3 is the most recent Roku that offers this feature.

2. Locate your Roku’s wired MAC address. This can be found on either the side or bottom of your player, or on the box you received it in. If you are unable to locate the MAC address that way, open the home screen on your Roku from your TV and then go to Settings > Network. The MAC address needed to register your Roku will be listed as either Ethernet Address or Wired MAC Address. The MAC address may have letters and/or numbers and will be in the format 00:00:00:00:00:00.

Now that you’ve located your Wired MAC address, please include it in your Network Registration Request at www.uvm.edu/techteam/playonline
