Streaming Devices/SmartTVs

Our campus network supports streaming devices and smart TVs that support WPA2-Enterprise wireless authentication or can be hard-wired using Ethernet.  (Please note the Chromecast, Amazon Fire Stick and some of the Roku devices do not support these connection methods.)

Wireless

If your device supports WPA2-Enterprise wireless authentication you should be prompted for your EagleNet username and password when attempting to connect.  After connecting, be sure to open a web browser on the device to complete registration.

Ethernet

To access the network via Ethernet (regular computer network cable), the student will need to plug their device in via Ethernet, turn it on, and then submit a work order with the device's MAC address.  Below are instructions for identifying the MAC address on some devices.

Apple TV

Apple TVs are not able to connect wirelessly, but can be connected via Ethernet.  Please plug in your device via Ethernet, turn it on, and then submit a work order with the device's MAC address.  To locate the MAC Address of your Apple TV:

  1. With your Apple TV remote, navigate to the Settings icon and select it.
  2. From the Settings menu, select General.
  3. Under General, select Network.
  4. Your MAC Address will be next to either Wi-Fi Address or Ethernet Address depending on whether you are connected to the internet via Wi-Fi or a Wired connection.

Roku Premiere+ and Roku Ultra

Rokus are not able to connect wirelessly, but the Premiere+ and Ultra can be connected via Ethernet.  Please plug in your device via Ethernet, turn it on, and then submit a work order with the device's MAC address.  To locate the MAC Address of your Roku:

  1. On the back on your Roku there are a pair of six 2-digit pairs separated by colons, e.g. 00:0D:0A:1H:3G:5C. One set is for the Ethernet connector and for the other for the wireless connector.
  2. Alternatively, from the Roku home screen, select settings> player info. The Addresses will be listed on-screen.

Smart TV/Bluray Player

Most Smart TVs and Bluray players are not able to connect wirelessly, but many come with an Ethernet port.  If your device does have an Ethernet port please plug in your device via Ethernet, turn it on, and then submit a work order with the device's MAC address.  To locate the MAC Address of your Smart TV or Bluray Player:

  • Most MAC Addresses will be visible in the Settings Menu, either under the Network or About sections.
  • Alternatively, check with the manufacturer for instructions on how to obtain the MAC Address for your specific model.
