Connecting Browserless Devices to UD's Wireless Network

Before connecting to UD's network, the MAC address for all devices must be registered with UD. Devices with a Web browser (i.e., computers, tablets, and smartphones) can connect directly to the UDel or eduroam network and then be registered at UD's Network Page.

Devices that do not have a Web browser will require you to register that device's MAC address manually. You will need to

  1. find your device's MAC address and
  2. register it at UD's Network Page.

Note for Google Chromecast owners: Google Chromecast devices do not work on UD's network.

First step: Find your device's MAC address

Follow the vendor's directions for finding your device's MAC address. A MAC address is a combination of 12 numerals and letters (0-9, a-f), often displayed with a -, : or . character between groups of characters. (Example: 77:c6:f8:95:b3:a6)

Directions for selected devices

  • Apple TV

  2. Select About.
  3. The MAC Address will be listed as the Wireless ID for wireless connections and as the Ethernet ID for Ethernet connections.
