Connect Game Console with Ethernet (Wired Internet)


How do I connect my game console with ethernet (wired internet) in the residence halls?


  1. Plug an ethernet cable into the wall port or access point and then into your game console
    • Important: Only plug the cable into LAN1, LAN2 or LAN3. The ports labeled Console or Pass-Thru will not provide internet.
  2. Locate your wired MAC address
  3. Fill out the Network Device Registration Form on MyState
    • You can find it in the list of forms on your MyState Dashboard
  4. Wait until the top of the hour passes (e.g. If you fill out the form at 2:05pm, wait until after 3:00pm)
  5. Unplug your ethernet cable and plug it back in and/or reboot the console
