Registering Your Personal Device

Registering your personal device

To register your personal device addresses, follow these steps in order:

  1. Determine the hardware address(es) of your device(s) wired Ethernet and/or wireless adapters.
    • For devices with a wired Ethernet port that you plug a network cable into, this address is usually known as a MAC address.
    • For wireless devices, this address is usually known as your Wi-Fi address.  See Determining your MAC or Wi-Fi address for instructions.
  2. Write down the device name, MAC/Wi-Fi address, and a device description for each hardware address you want to register. For example, if you have a Dell laptop, your device name might be Jennifer’s laptop, and your device description might be Dell Inspiron 3000.
  3. Go to the computer lab in your residence hall, and log into a computer with your Alverno username and password.
  4. Open a browser and go to Complete the registration forms for each device you’d like to connect.  See Connecting Your Personal Devices to Alverno's Wireless Network for instructions.
