Add a New Device

To add a new device to your MY Devices listing you will need to know the MAC address of your device. To locate your MAC address for all major devices please see: How do I find the MAC address of my specific device?
MAC addresses are represented as a set of 6 pairs of letters and numbers, separated by colons (ex. AA:BB:CC:11:22:33). We recommend checking manufacturers’ websites to learn how to obtain MAC addresses for particular devices.
  1. Navigate to My Devices Portal > Manage Devices and select Add.

  3. Enter the MAC address (sometimes referred to as the Physical Address or Device ID) of the device.
  4. Enter a description of the device (e.g., John Doe’s X-Box One)
  5. Select Submit
  6. After properly registering your device the status will show “Pending”.  Your device is now ready to join the “mydevices” wireless network and will be useable immediately.
