Re: How do you handle Game Consoles?

We encourage students to use the wired connection because the consoles do not support WPA2-Enterprise/802.1x.  The reason we mandate that they plugin is that our open network is restricted to external only traffic over ports 80 and 443.  The issue with that is that it restricts them from playing games online.

 

We aren’t running Clearpass but our NAC autodiscovers the device type and sets it into an authenticated role and assigns the proper vlans.  What we did in the past for MACtracking was a page where they would manually input the info for their device.
