New: Register gaming consoles and other non-WPA2 devices for use in McGill residences

Students in McGill residences can now access the wireless network in REZ with their gaming consoles, such as Sony’s Playstation, Microsoft’s Xbox, and other devices that don't support the WPA2-Enterprise standard.

These kinds of devices would normally not be able to access the REZ wireless network because there's no way to enter your McGill Username and Password credentials to log in. Now you can self-register such devices by entering the corresponding MAC address into the website https://gpass.mcgill.ca.
