ResNet - Device Compatability

Which devices will work with Wired and Wireless connections in the Residence Halls

Rules of Thumb

  • If a device has a built-in ethernet port, it will most likely be able to receive a wired ethernet connection. 
  • If a device is a "Smart" device (excluding smart TVs) it will most likely NOT work on Titan WiFi (e.g. fans, speakers, lights, outlets, etc.), but may work on Titan WiFi Guest (not secure, not supported by UWO IT)
  • Roku Smart TVs that do not have an ethernet port, will not receive an internet connection on campus.
