Have a game system, smart TV, or other device you need to NetReg? Now you can self-register your devices that don't have web browsers.
To self-register your device you will need your Hampshire login, the wireless MAC address (network identifier) of the device, and the ability to access our self-registration web page from an already networked device. Steps for finding the MAC address on some popular gaming consoles and media players is below.
Once you have located your wireless MAC address, please visit: netreg.hampshire.edu/self-registration.html to register a device.
A Media Access Control (MAC) address is a unique identifier used to distinguish a device from others on a network. Your device may have two MAC addresses, one for wired and one for wireless. You will need the wireless address to register the device on our wireless network. MAC addresses are usually listed on a sticker on the device or in the settings of the device. It's listed as 12 characters, sometime separated by dashes or colons (e.g. 12:34:56:4a:5b:6c).
The first time turning on an Xbox One system requires an internet connection to reach the settings menu. The work around for this is to allow the Xbox to run through the system setup, let it fail, select "Fix It" and then it will attempt to diagnose the issue. When that fails, it will bring you to a screen prompting you to manually set up the connection, listing both the wireless and wired MAC address.
Alternative Method for Locating the Wireless MAC Address:
The wireless network MAC addresses can be found on the UPC label on the Apple TV box as "Wireless ID".
You can also find the MAC addresses on the bottom or back of your Roku player.
