For gaming consoles, wireless printers, and streaming media devices
Connecting your device to DeviceNet allows you to connect to your device wirelessly and not interfere with the residence network.
Once you've registered your device (such as XBox, Playstation, Nintendo, Chromecast, Apple TV, and Roku) with DeviceNet, you'll be able to connect your device to a new WIFI network called DeviceNet.
DeviceNet uses a PreShared Key, like your home network and is not meant for laptops, tablets, or mobile phones, except when connecting to those devices.
DeviceNet is only available in residence.
How to use DeviceNet
1) Find the MAC address of your device
In order to use DeviceNet you need to register the media access control (MAC) address of your device. The MAC address is a unique identifier assigned to a network device.
It can often be found on the bottom or back of the device and is formatted in six groups of two hexadecimal digits. The address may be formatted like aa:bb:cc:11:22:33 or aa-bb-cc-11-22-33.
