Service Summary

ITS recommends that students, faculty, and staff, when possible, configure their wired and wireless network devices for 802.1x authentication. Unfortunately, some consumer electronics devices, such as gaming consoles, printers, and smart TVs, are not 802.1x capable and require alternative authentication. To solve this problem, student, faculty, and staff may each register up to 5 devices for network access through a web portal at mydevices.gmu.edu.
