Connecting a Game Console or Other Device:
To register a browser-less or other type of network device such as a game console, you will need to obtain the MAC (sometimes referred to as physical) address of the device you wish to register. Please refer to your manufacturer's documentation for this information. Once you have the MAC address you will need to login to your MyResnet.com account and select “add another device” from the “Connect a Device” section and enter your Device Type, the MAC address of the device you wish to register, description and then click on the register button. Once registered you may need to reboot the device in order for it to obtain a new ip address.
If your device is not getting online, check to make sure that the data cable is plugged in on each end. If it is still not working, plug a known working computer into the jack you are using and see if it gets an IP address and you are able to get online. If the computer works, then you know that you have a working data jack. If this is the case, please contact the manufacturer for support, as Apogee does not provide support for these devices other than to verify that your data jack is working correctly. If the data jack is not working, please call Apogee 855-813-7007 or visit MyResNet. Appropriate Use of Routers, Switches and Wireless Access Points on the MyResNet Network If you have brought a router, switch, hub or wireless access point from home that you plan to use in your room/apartment, please read the following:
Retransmission or propagation of the network connection through the use of switches, hubs, routers or wireless access points is allowed for personal use within the resident's room or apartment. All devices placed on the Apogee network must be securely and properly configured, and the resident who registers the device(s) will be solely responsible for any violation or abuse resulting from the use of the device(s). Any device that causes network-related problems or denies service to other users may be disconnected from the network without prior warning.
Securing a Wireless Access Point
Apogee requires that all wireless access points attached to the network are properly configured and secured. This ensures that the owner of the wireless access point knows exactly who is connecting to it. You are responsible for all network traffic that passes through your access point. For example, if a computer in the room next door connects through your secured/unsecured wireless access point and becomes infected with a virus, everyone connected to the access point will be quarantined until the infected computer is cleaned. To securely configure your access point you should enable WEP or WPA security and/or MAC based filtering, change the default SSID and change the default admin password. Please check your router WAP documentation. We do not provide configuration support for wireless access points.
