I wanted to share our progress on the campus network upgrade. As promised, last week we updated the network in Blakely Hall, Pine Hall, Spooner Hall, Indy Hall, Multi-Ethnic Resource Center, and Lafave House. At the same time, we also updated to the new wireless network. If you access the wireless in these areas, you will now see new wireless networks: UofM, UofM Secure, and UofM Guest. Where you previously used umm-wireless to connect to the wireless network, please use UofM or UofM Secure. The Helpdesk can help you with questions, or you can view the online setup guides.
The exciting news is that we are moving slightly ahead of schedule, and have arranged to update the network in the campus apartments this week. We expect this work to start on Tuesday, July 24. Please remember that as buildings are cut over, your may lose your network connection for up to 30 minutes. Thank you for your patience and understanding. Everyone has been very supportive.
