About MAC Addresses
This address is a 12 character sequence of numbers (0-9) and letters (A to F) separated by colons (:). Examples: a6:01:cf:4c:d3:88 5c:f3:70:77:aa:f1
MAC addresses will never use letters past F such as O or i. If you receive an error when inputting your MAC address it's likely because you have mistaken the number 0 for the letter O or the number 1 for the letter i.
The device you are registering via this exception process must be turned on and connected to the network prior to registration.
Note About Gaming Consoles
Online game systems are allowed on the SPU network but support from CIS is at a minimal level. You are responsible for setup, configuration and trouble shooting. Some online game sites are known to have performance problems. Higher priority network requirements will take precedence over gaming activities.
A Note About Personal Hubs, Switches, Wireless Access Points:
Personally owned hubs, switches and wireless access points will not work on the SPU Network. Do not attempt to register these devices.
A Note About Personal Printers
If you choose to bring a personal printer please be aware that they are not supported and will not work via the campus wireless network - you will need to connect via direct cable (USB or other).
Our recommendation for printing is to use the Campus Printing Solution MFP's.
