Game consoles including PlayStation, Xbox and Nintendo devices should connect to the network using UARK Housing IoT Wi-Fi or through a wired connection using ports 1-3 on your Aruba access point (white box mounted to the wall).
Mobile Devices connect to UARK Wi-Fi. When signing into to UARK Wi-Fi you will need to use your UARK credentials. These are the same credentials you use to sign into UAConnect and Blackboard.
Smart TVs do not connect to the Wi-Fi networks (this includes Roku TVs and Fire TVs).
However, they do work using a wired connection. ResNet will provide ethernet cables if needed.
Currently most smart devices do not work on the UARK wireless networks.
The network team is actively working on a solution to fix this issue and get these devices working.
