7.1. How to connect an XBOX (without an authorized/BABTEL provided Z1 Router)

If you want to connect an XBOX you have two options. You may bridge your connection from a laptop using the below instructions, or you can rent a WiFi Router for 15$/month (the WiFi router gives you unlimited logins from behind the WiFi Router). WiFi Routers are only available at AUAB due to the wired infrastructure--please visit the sales office to get a Router.

  1. Choose a phone or other device to mimic, then find its MAC address.

    On a Windows phone, you can find the MAC address by going to Settings > System > About, then clicking the More Info button.

    For a Windows tablet or PC, you can open up a command prompt (CMD.exe), then type ipconfig /all and press Enter. Under the Wireless LAN Adapter, you want to use the Physical Address.

  2. Connect to the hotel's Wi-Fi and authenticate and/or accept terms through the web browser

  3. Disconnect the device from the network – Its work is done

  4. Tell your Xbox to act like your other device by mimicking its MAC address

On Xbox 360, go to System > Network Settings > Wireless Network > Configure Network > Additional Settings > Advanced Settings Alternate MAC Address

On Xbox One, go to Settings > Network > Advanced Settings > Alternate MAC Address

      5. Enter the MAC address of the device you previously connected with and save the settings

Once the changes are saved, you should be able to successfully run a network test to the internet.
