Network: My Devices Portal

The My Devices Portal allows you to register and manage all* of your wireless devices for the UWRF-Registered network without having to contact DoTS. These devices are typically gaming systems or other devices that cannot connect to eduroam for some reason. You can also remove/suspend devices from your My Devices Portal in the event that a device is lost or stolen.

Essentially, you are associating your devices to your account by entering the MAC address of your device into this portal.

When you register a device you are certifying that the device is compliant with the Board of Regents Acceptable Use Policy and you are responsible for any complaints that are filed against this device such as copyright infringements. DO NOT register a guest's device on this network if you are not willing to legally accept the actions of your guest.

The Steps

  1. Go to http://mydevices.uwrf.edu. You must be on campus for this link to work.
  2. Log in with your Falcon Account (W#) credentials and follow the instructions below.

Adding a Device to your Registered Devices List

  1. Select the Add button
  2. Fill in the Device name (You can just say phone or laptop; it is just for you to differentiate your own devices.)
  3. Fill in the Device ID (this is also known as a MAC Address)
  4. Fill in the Description, if desired
  5. Connect to the UWRF Registered network from the device using uwrfwifi as the password
When adding or otherwise managing your device, you may see that your device seems to be in a "pending" status. That status does not pertain to you registering your device. You can safely ignore that status.

Removing a Device from your Registered Devices List

  1. Determine what device you want to remove and select the arrow (>) to the right of the device status
  2. Select the Delete button
  3. Confirm that you want to delete it by clicking the Yes button
  4. When you are back on your device list you might have to Refresh for the device to disappear from your list

Changing the Description of Device on your Registered Devices List

  1. Determine what device you want to edit and click the arrow (>) to the right of the device status
  2. Select the Edit button
  3. Enter a new Description and select the Submit button
  4. The description has now been changed

Lost or Stolen Devices?

If you find yourself in the situation where you lost a device or it was stolen, you should immediately go to your My Devices Portal and declare your device as lost.

  1. Determine the device you want to mark as lost or stolen and click the arrow (>) to the right of the device status
  2. Select either the Lost or Stolen button
  3. Confirm that you want to mark it lost or stolen by selecting the Yes button
    • Once the device is marked as lost or stolen, it will not be able to connect to our wireless network until reinstated (see below)
  4. When you are back on your device list you might have to Refresh for the device to be updated on your list

If you find the device, you can reinstate it by going back to the device from your list and clicking the arrow (>) to the right of the status and then select Reinstate. When you are back on your device list, you might have to Refresh.
