Self Help - Gaming Consoles, Rokus and Apple TVs, TVs and Network Appliances in ResNet

Students on ResNet in the residence halls can connect their online game consoles, wireless TVs, and streaming boxes such as Rokus and AppleTVs. These personal devices were not designed for campus use. Unfortunately, they may require wireless network speeds that Geneseo cannot implement. You may have mixed success using these systems on ResNet.

This matrix displays the supported connections for each device:
