The Office of Information Technology has enhanced the existing servicenet wireless network to improve functionality for gaming devices.

Servicenet is a high speed, low latency wireless network, enhanced to improve gaming support on the campus wireless network. Servicenet also supports gaming features, such as Universal Plug and Play (UPnP). The servicenet wireless network supports gaming devices like Xbox, PlayStation, Nintendo and gaming laptops.  

Register your gaming device

If you have used servicenet in the past to connect your wireless gaming device, there is no additional action to take. If you experience any connectivity issues with your gaming device, simply restart it. 

If you have a new gaming device, you must register it using the Network Record – Register form. In order to register a device, you will also need to provide your device's MAC address.  

detailed guide to completing the Network Registration form is available in the Service Portal, including a guide on how to find a MAC address. 

Please note, servicenet is an isolated network with no access to internal university resources. If you have a device such as a laptop that will serve dual purposes, work and gaming, you will have to change your network between eduroam and servicenet.
