Assistance required from users unable to login to UoD WiFi

We have become aware of an issue for users logging in to UoD WiFi from certain devices running Windows 8 and Mac iOS.  A user will temporarily be unable to authenticate  despite their login credentials  being correct.

We are unable to replicate the issue so it would be extremely helpful if anyone experiencing  this problem  could get in touch with Service Desk.  It will allow us to run realtime debugs  on the wireless infrastructure  to obtain diagnostic information our network  vendor (Cisco) has requested.

We understand how frustrating such issues can be so your help in obtaining the information is greatly appreciated .
