Register a Nintendo Switch

IMPORTANT: The Nintendo Switch is currently not fully compatible with Juniata's wireless network.
A USB Ethernet adapter is required for multiplayer gaming on campus.


Step 1: Place your Nintendo Switch into the TV dock and plug a USB Ethernet Adapter into one of the
available USB ports on the dock.


Step 2: From the Home screen select System Settings.


Step 3: From the System Settings menu select "Internet" and then select "Internet Settings."
Note: The MAC address displayed on this screen is NOT the MAC address of your USB Ethernet adapter.
Continue to the next step.


Step 4: From the Internet Settings menu select Wired Connection.


Step 5: Make a note of the MAC address for your USB Ethernet adapter.


Alternate Method: Some USB Ethernet Adapters have the MAC/Physical address printed on them.


Make note of your Wired MAC Address. It will be in the format XX-XX-XX-XX-XX-XX

Next, you will need to register your Switch with the Network.


Step 6: On your computer, go to Device Registration. Click Agree.


Step 7: Select Register your Game Console.


Step 8: Enter your Juniata username, password, and your Nintendo Switch’s MAC address that you wrote down.  Click Register.


Your Nintendo Switch will be registered to the network shortly. Leave your Switch connected to the network via Ethernet cable until you receive a confirmation email that it was successfully registered.
