Gaming FAQ

Can I connect my game console to ResNet?

Xbox 360/1 – Microsoft has changed the way Xbox Live and the Xbox web browser work.  You must have an active internet connection and be signed in to Xbox Live before the console will allow you to open the web browser.  This is a catch 22 on the ResNet network because you cannot obtain an active internet connection until you log in to ResNet.

PlayStation 3/4 – A Playstation3 can connect with no issues.  A Playstation4 requires that you be logged into PlayStation Network before you can open a web browser.

WII – Not at this time.

However, Campus Living IT and IT Services are currently exploring options to allow game consoles to log into ResNet and connect to the internet.

Is World of Warcraft, Hearthstone, Diablo III, or other Blizzard games safe to play on ResNet?

Yes. Go forth and quest!
