Registering your Nintendo devices for wireless
If you have never registered your device before

If you have never registered your device before, you have two options. Option number one is to bring it and all proper cables (power cable, controller, etc) down to ResNet for registration. We will then register you in office. Estimated time: 10 min.
Another option would be to email the MAC address* along with your name, the device name, and the MAC address typed out. Once you send that email, we will register it within 24 working hours. We will send you a confirmation email once it has been registered.

If you have registered in a past semester

If you have registered in a past semester, and this is the same device as one previously registered, you only need to go to the registration student portal at and hit “register” next to the entry for your console.

* The MAC address can be found the following way:
Select the Wii button from the main menu.
Select Wii settings and select Wii System Settings.
Using the arrow on the right side of the screen, scroll to page two and select Internet.
