Resmedianet

ResMediaNet

Most consumer electronics beyond computers and phones/tablets do not support the WPA2-Enterprise protocol needed to connect to eduroam. To meet the demand for wireless connectivity on devices like TVs, gaming consoles, streaming devices, etc., CCIT Network Services has a wireless network named ResMediaNet which is now available across campus.

In order to use ResMediaNet, you will need to register your device on the Clemson network. To do this you will need to find the wireless MAC address (a unique identifier assigned to a Network Interface Card by the manufacturer) of your device. Instructions for finding the MAC address on some popular devices can be found below. Once you have your wireless MAC address, you will need to register it by following these steps:

  1. Go to http://netreg.clemson.edu .
  2. Log in with your Clemson username and password.
  3. Select Add Registration on the left of the screen.
  4. Enter the wireless MAC Address of your device in the format XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX in the box labeled Hardware Address. (Instructions for finding the MAC address on some popular devices can be found below)
  5. Enter a Device Description.
  6. Click I Agree at the bottom of the screen.

Once your device has been registered, find the wireless settings on your device and connect to the network named resmedianet using the password tigerpaw. Connecting will fail if you have not successfully registered your device following the steps above.
