Play Online Games On Campus

The best way to connect your game console to the internet is through an Ethernet port with a wired connection. Wired connections have better performance and help prevent wireless network interference. 

Wired Ethernet connections must also be used with a majority of online multiplayer games or party/group play or chat. The asu wireless network does not support some online game play types and features for security purposes.

If your game console does not have an Ethernet port, you will need to follow the following steps to connect your console to the 'asu guest' wireless network:

  1. On your mobile phone or computer and while connected to the ‘asu’ wireless internet, Go to and sign in with your ASURITE username and password
  2. Select “Add” to register a new device
  3. Give your device a nickname in “Device name” and then enter the Wireless MAC for your device in “Device ID”, and click ‘Submit’.
  4. Connect your registered device to the ‘asu guest’ wireless network.
