If you have a computer, tablet, phone, or similar device
Connect to the wireless network EMU-Guest (your device should do this automatically). If your computer does not have a wifi adapter, students may get one for free from the IS Helpdesk.
Try to browse to any web site. Your device will display the following page. (Your device may do this automatically).
- Click Student and Employee Access.
This will load the page you see now. Follow the instructions below for your type of device. Scroll to the bottom for instructions on connecting gaming consoles and TVs, or if you have a computer you want to connect to the network port in your room or office.
If you have a smart TV, gaming device, Roku, or other similar device
First connect your computer or phone. You need to have this device connected first.
Now you need to find the MAC address of your device. If you don't know how to find this, try Googling "MAC address" and the name of your device. The MAC address may also be referred to as Hardware Address, Physical Address, Ethernet Address, or Wired Address. It will be a 12 digit combination of numbers and letters such as 00:3c:ec:29:9a:44 or 00-f0-cc-90-15-aa.
There may be more than one MAC address depending on whether the device is capable of both wired and wireless access. Choose the MAC address for the type of connectivity you wish to use.
Once you have the MAC address, you need to log in to the registration page at https://appsrv3.emu.edu/is/register-device/ and enter the MAC address. Please be aware that you will be held responsible for all activity on this device. If the device is used in a way that violates EMU policies, even if by someone else without your permission, it is still your responsibility.
- After the MAC address of your device is registered, you can gain network access through it in two ways:
- By obtaining the key for the wireless SSID EMU-iot. The key will change at the beginning of every semester and is available when you log into my.emu.edu.
- By plugging it into the ethernet port in your room. Most residence hall rooms have three network ports on the wall. The live one is usually the left port of the double port module. If more than one live port is needed, contact the Helpdesk.
To connect a computer (NOT a TV, gaming device, etc.) to a wired ethernet port
EMU discourages the use of wired ports in residence halls. Please obtain a free USB wifi adapter from the IS Helpdesk. If you believe this will not meet your residence hall computing needs, please discuss your situation with Information Systems.
Most devices that require your phone and the device to be on the same network are unsupported.
