Registering Your Network Device

To gain access to the Missouri S&T secure networks you must first register your device by entering its MAC address, also known as an ethernet address, in our device registration tool.


Why is it necessary to register your device?

  • Missouri S&T’s computing policy requires all network connected devices be registered with IT.  
  • Without registration the device poses a network security vulnerability.
