At 7:30AM on Tuesday, December 15, software maintenance will be performed on our cable TV system that is expected to resolve the majority (if not all) of the channel dropping issues that we have been experiencing this fall.  After the maintenance is performed, the system will go down for approximately five minutes.  A few TVs may need to rescan channels, but the majority of TVs will not.

Brief wireless outage

Submitted on Tuesday, 11/24/2015, at 12:26 PM

Tuesday morning at 7:30 AM we will be upgrading our campus wireless controllers.  This will result in a rolling interruption of wireless service in different parts of the campus as the various components restart.  Any individual user will likely see an outage of 10-15 minutes at some point during the 7:30 AM – 8:00 AM window, and we expect all wireless service will be back up and running normally before 8:00 AM.   Wired network service will be unaffected.
