Can I bring my gaming systems to school?
All gaming systems are welcome at Austin College. We do not restrict devices or gaming network traffic. The XBox has some minor issues with NAT that you can read more about below.
How do I connect my gaming system to wireless?
We recommend that gaming devices utilize a wired network connection to maximize bandwidth and minimize latency (lag). However, you may connect to wireless.
You can read more about the wireless networks on campus and the registration requirements. For gaming devices, you will need the wireless MAC address to register. Instructions to locate this vary by system and version, but can be easily found by searching the Internet.
