Most game consoles do not support WPA or WPA2 with enterprise encryption. Because of this, devices will need to be manually registered on start.rit.edu and connected to the open "rit" wireless network.

If you do not find your specific game console below, please reference the manufacturer instructions to find the MAC Address of your device. Once you have this, follow the Manual Registration instructions.
