Due to wireless network updates, IT Services is notifying the campus community of coming changes to campus WiFi network names, in addition to several short WiFi connectivity outages across campus between 6 a.m. and 7 a.m., Thursday July 23.
“The updates to the network aim at expanding the types of devices that can be connected to it,” says Computing Consultant Bodek Frak. “These include display monitors and Apple TVs, Playstations and Xboxes, and Ubuntu devices.”
As of 7 a.m. July 23, campus WiFi network names will reflect the following changes:
1. UWINDSOR (No Change)
2. UWINDSOR_SECURE will become known as UWINSECURE, and
3. UWINDSOR_RESIDENCE network will become known as UWINRESLIFE.
Frak says these changes will require users to update WiFi settings on their mobile devices in order to reconnect to the renamed networks. The UWINDSOR network logon page banner will start using the University’s new logo and colours as well.
For assistance with WiFi setting changes, please contact the IT Services Service Desk at 519-253-3000, extension 4440, or email HelpDesk@uwindsor.ca.
