Connecting other devices to the network

Most gaming consoles, smart devices and printers are not able to connect to the UOW network via Wi-Fi due to their inability to connect to Enterprise networks (i.e. they do not support WPA2 Enterprise).

You may be able to connect consoles and other devices via the network outlet in your room via an Ethernet cable. If the device is able to connect and retrieve an IP address (would look similar to the format 10.XX.XX.XX) you can border authenticate to connect the device to the network using the address below:

Please be aware, the ability to connect via a network outlet will vary with each device.
