Device Registration Information

Device Registration Information
This site contains resources related to the registration and use of personal devices on the Donegal School District's data (computer) network.
 
Device Registration
 
Prior to completing the registration form in PowerSchool, you will need to collect the following information:
  1. Make and Model of the device or devices you wish to register.
  2. The WLAN (WiFi) MAC address of each device you wish to register.

Make and Model: 

This is fairly self-explanatory.  The product's manufacturer and the Model of the Device.  Examples: HP Elitebook 810, Lenovo X130e, Nokia 928, Apple iPhone 5C, Samsung Galaxy Tab 4, Apple Airbook. 

MAC Address: 

This is a bit more tricky.  A MAC (media access control) address is a 12 character unique identifier coded into the WLAN (WiFi) adapter of your device.  This MAC address is the most important piece of information we need to collect.  If you provide the wrong address, your device will be unable to connect to our network.  The MAC Address of your device will be 12 characters in length and will typically be presented to you in the following format XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX   Please omit all colons and use only lower-case letters when completing the form. Failure to do so will cause delays in processing your request.  A MAC address can only ever contain the letters a-f and the numerals 0-9, if you are submitting any characters other than these, you have not identified the proper address.

Example: 
MAC address shown on device:  BC:33:5B:D3:6E:83
MAC address formatted for the registration form:  bc335bd36e83

Make sure you submit the MAC (physical) address of your device's WLAN (WiFi) adapter and not the address of the device's Bluetooth, Ethernet, Tunnel, or any other adapter.
