PACE-GUEST: Connecting Media/Streaming Devices


Students who want to connect a media or streaming device to the Pace wireless network must register the device's Media Access Control (MAC) address and connect to the PACE-GUEST network. This will allow the device to have direct Internet access and no further action is needed. However, the device will not have access to the PACE-WIFI network and will not be able to communicate with other devices (e.g. smartphones, laptops) on that network. For instance, a user with a smartphone on PACE-WIFI cannot chrome-cast to their SmartTV on PACE-GUEST because they are on two separate networks.

Please note, if your device has an Ethernet port, we suggest that you connect it to the wall network jack with an Ethernet cable.

IMPORTANT: While the steps listed below have worked for some users, we cannot guarantee that they will work for everyone, since it depends on the device. Generally, the device must be able to be profiled (the manufacturer/model can be identified). Smart Home hubs and other smart home devices are not supported.

Devices that can be profiled include:

Amazon Echo
Amazon Kindle
Amazon TV
Amazon-Android Device
Game Consoles
Google Chrome Cast
Google Glass
Nintendo Consoles
Sony Devices (TV)
Samsung Devices (TV)
Sony Game Consoles
Vizio (TV)
XBOX Game Consoles
