This series of works will start on Tues 13 Dec and span into the New Year
We’ll begin to move the areas listed below across to the new Wi-Fi network shortly. Click on the links and download the .ics file to add any of these events to your calendar:
Each switch over will take approximately one hour and you can expect to experience a complete Wi-Fi outage at the location in question during that time. There will be a two hour ‘at risk’ period directly after each piece of work to address any unforeseen issues that may arise.
After the work in these buildings
UoD_WiFi will no longer appear and you should connect your devices to eduroam using these instructions to get superfast speeds. The username format you should use to authenticate to eduroam is email@example.com (full username; email address without the dots). Why not download this poster and put it up in your office/within your building if it’s listed above, to make sure everyone is aware?
Please note that we’re only migrating to the new wireless in these locations; future work will be needed to bring them onto the new wired network. If you’re using a laptop plugged into the wired network in one of these areas, you may wish to take advantage of having your next-gen Wi-Fi activated by connecting it wirelessly instead.
Until all areas have switched over to the new wireless network, the old UoD_WiFi and eduroam networks will still be available in parts of our campuses. This means you may have to re-authenticate as you roam between the old and new wireless networks.
As ever, if you require any help, please do get in touch with UoD IT via Help4U (ref #1141-1144).
