DuqNet IoT

(DuqNet IoT is currently only available to students living in the residence halls)

Campus network improvements have placed CTS in the position to be able to extend wireless services to gaming consoles and streaming devices. CTS has configured a program to allow those devices to access the internet. Through this webpage you can register four non-WPA2 enterprise capable devices. Devices like your AppleTV, Xbox, PlayStation, ROKU, etc. will be able to connect to the campus wireless network, although any streaming devices connected to IoT must be controlled with their respective remote. This network, which is called "DuqNet IoT", has been designed for recreational purposes only. Access to internal academic resources will not be provided.

This network is considered ad hoc and will not be supported in a similar fashion as DuqNet. 

What does that mean for you?

Requests from customers about slowness (or lag during gameplay) and general connectivity issues will not be serviced by CTS on a personal basis.

What will CTS support?

CTS will monitor if the service is up and available only. CTS will only act if the network is experiencing a campus-wide outage.

What do I need to gain access to this network?

You will need to know your MultiPass credentials and the hardware address (MAC address) of the device you would like to connect.

How do I get the hardware address of my device?

Please contact the manufacturer of your device to obtain its hardware address or perform a quick Google search for "How do I find the hardware address for my (insert device model here)..." 

Why am I only allowed to register four devices?

CTS will be constantly evaluating this service and its impact on the overall campus internet connection.  For this reason, we can only allow four devices per person.  This restriction may be lifted in the future.

Why do I have to re-register my devices to IoT every fall semester?

In order to optimize authentication onto DuqNet IoT, CTS will purge all MAC addresses from the DuqNet IoT database at the very beginning of the fall semester. This purging will clean up MAC addresses for devices that are no longer on campus, help CTS manage the DuqNet IoT service, and speed up authentication for DuqNet IoT users.

I have multiple devices; can I manage my account to add and delete devices as I see fit?

Yes, after you log-in to the registration page you will have the option to add and delete devices.

I'm ready, how do I start?

Just click the blue button below to register your devices on DuqNet IoT.
