Gaming On Campus

Network requirements vary for each gaming console or game (such as XBox, Wii, Playstation, etc.) Many times, gaming consoles are not designed to work on large networks such as college campuses. They work well in home networks because there are usually only one or two gaming devices on a home network.

Due to the wide variety of configuration needs from various game and console manufacturers, we cannot guarantee the functionality of a console or game on Flagler College's network. It is not technologically possible for us to open ports for each individual console. This is not the result of a decision or policy about gaming; rather, it is the result of the hardware differences between home routers and commercial routers.

What can I do if my game or console does not seem to work?

Your console will only work for sure if you purchase your own individual internet connection, just like you have at home. You can contact Comcast to have this set up.

How can I connect my device to the wifi network?
