Summary

This article provides information on connecting a smart TV, Roku, or other set-top boxes to an Open wireless network.

 

How-To

Task: To connect a smart TV, Roku, or other set top boxes to your Open wireless network.

 

Instructions

Step 1 - While the TV is off, register your device at Network Registration.

 

Step 2 - Click on "My Devices".

 

Step 3 - Click on "Register New Device".

 

Step 4 - Wait a few minutes for registration to complete.

Step 5 - Turn on your TV and connect to <campus>-Open (eg UNH-Open, KSC-Open, or PSU-Open). In some cases, you might need to perform a software update.

 

Additional Notes:

  • It is important to note that smart TVs can sometimes have difficulty initially connecting to the UNH-Open network, whether it's the first time on campus, or returning from a break. It might take several reboots, or in some cases, a full factory reset of the device to establish a connection.
  • It is also possible for the TV to be initially fingerprinted incorrectly in the authentication system, in which case you can call the Help Desk at 862-4242 to correct the issue.

 

Outcome

Your smart TV, Roku, or other set-top boxes are now connected to the Open wireless network.
