How to Register your device for SCSU Gadgets and Locate your Mac Address

Introduction

 

The registration for WIRELESS (Wi-Fi) connected devices, you can do this at the WIRELESS Registration Page

The registration for WIRED (Ethernet) connected devices, you can do this at the WIRED Registration Page

In order to connect your media device to the network, your media device will need to be registered on the 'scsugadgets' network with what is known as your MAC Address.

This network is intended for devices that do not meet the requirements to connect to the HuskyNetSecure network, which you should use if at all possible. 

For the best network stability, including streaming and gaming performance, and to maximize the availability of the wireless network, we highly recommend that you use an Ethernet cable and connect your media device to the wired network. Of course this is not possible on all gaming consoles, especially handhelds, in which your only choice will be wireless.

The registration process can take up to 24 hours after the form is submitted. You will be notified by an email that will be sent to your SCSU email.
