Connecting to APU-MYDEVICES

This network will provide internet and network resources to devices pre-registered at mydevices.apu.edu (i.e. gaming systems and televisions). Only legacy systems not supporting 802.1x should use this network, as it is not encrypted end to end. Connect your Android and iOS phones and tablets to APUWIFI instead.

Connecting a device to the MyDevices network can vary depending on the device and where it has the MAC address located. The MAC address is made of six alphanumeric number pairs separated by colons like this A1:B2:C3:D4:E5:F6. This is usually located in the settings of the device and then in network settings. Device-specific instructions for finding your MAC address are available in step 4 of this article.

1. On a computer, go to mydevices.apu.edu

 

2. There may be a private connection error message, but to bypass it, click on "Advanced" and then "proceed to mydevices.apu.edu"

    Wondering if there is any way to use the APUDEVICES (or a different Wifi) to connect to a Google Home Mini, as the Wifi would also need to be connected to a phone. Any advice? Can this be done?
