Roku

Unfortunately, Roku players do not support WPA Enterprise, which is the wireless network type we use. Therefore, they are unable to connect wirelessly. However, if your Roku has an Ethernet port, then you are able to connect via an Ethernet cable to the data port located in your residence hall room. You will need to locate the MAC address of your Roku and register it with our network before you are able to receive access.

Step One
Ensure that you have a compatible Roku player with an Ethernet port. The Roku 3 is the most recent Roku that offers this feature. 

Step Two
Locate your Roku's wired MAC address. This can be found on either the side or bottom of your player, or on the box you received it in. If you are unable to locate the MAC address that way, open the home screen on your Roku from your TV and then go to Settings > Network. The MAC address needed to register your Roku will be listed as either Ethernet Address or Wired MAC Address.

Step Three
Register the MAC Address.

Step Four
Plug your Ethernet cable into the Roku and the data port in your wall, and you should be able to access the internet from there.
