WiFi: Legacy Devices

Some older devices may not support 802.1x authentication and therefore will be unable to connect to the Eduroam WiFi network. You should use the WiFi network named dpupsk for these devices. In order to connect to this network please follow the steps below. (*Note) We highly recommend connecting gaming consoles to the network via the gigabit ethernet port(s) available in the residence hall rooms for the best experience. See instructions to register your wired device.

Device Examples: Playstation, XBOX, Roku and ROKU TV, Amazon Echo, etc.
