Instructions by Device

Using the wireless network

Many gaming devices offer wireless connection capabilities. However, not all support the WPA security type required by the SMU network. If your device does offer WPA, you will need to configure the device just as you would your computer. Once it is configured for PerunaNet, locate the Mac address and register the address according to the instructions above. The device should then connect via PerunaNet.
