Connecting a Game Console to the Residential Network (ResNet)

Game consoles that connect to the Internet such as the Sony PlayStation 3, Nintendo Wii, and Xbox 360 can be connected to the BW Residential Network. 

Before you can get your game system online, you are required to register your system at:  You will need to supply the MAC address of your game console (its unique identifier on the network).  Instructions for locating the MAC address of your system can be found on this link, as well. 

Once network connectivity has been enabled for your system, you will receive a confirmation message via e-mail from our Networking department.  Please allow two or three days to receive this message. 
As a reminder, the primary purpose of the BW network is for academic pursuits and will ultimately have precedence over  recreational uses when dictated.
