The Dental Hospital will be migrated across to the new network on Wed 30 – Thu 31 May (07:00-18:00).
There will be no internet access in the building across these two days. Migrations will affect all client devices such as PCs, laptops, printers, desk phones, building management systems etc. connected to the University network.
You may find your device becomes active prior to the completion time. If this does occur, your network service should still be considered at risk up until 18:00 on Wed 30.
Whilst the replacement of the network equipment should be completed by Wed evening, some devices (such as printers etc.) may need further configuration afterwards. Work to update such devices will be carried out on subsequent days if required.
Follow the guidance below to re-establish your computers’ wired (ethernet) connection afterwards:
You will need to enable 802.1x authentication on your wired network connection post-migration. Go to the IT webpage to source the instructions you need.
Managed computers (e.g. Staff Desktop)
Take no action for these devices post-migration. They should automatically connect to the new wired network but may need to be rebooted if they have been switched on throughout the change.
UoD_WiFi will disappear in your area. Connect to eduroam to get super-fast wifi using your full username (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Reporting issues/getting help
Please contact the Service Desk online or by phone on extension 88000 once the work is complete.
All Dental Hospital activities will run on the University’s new, next-gen network following the successful migration.
