SERVICE: CofC-guest Wireless Maintenance

IMPACT: The CofC-guest wireless network service will be intermittent during this maintenance window.

DATE: Wednesday, August 13th, 2014

OVERVIEW: IT will be upgrading the CofC-guest wireless network. Access to CofC-guest will be intermittent on August 13th, 2014 beginning at 9:00AM and lasting throughout the day. After the upgrade, visitors connecting to the CofC-guest wireless network will see an updated portal (see below).

Wireless Portal

The College’s current guest gateway system is no longer supported and must be replaced before the start of the Fall semester. If you experience any issues connecting to the CofC-guest wireless network, please contact the Helpdesk at (834)953-3375 or helpdesk@cofc.edu; or you can stop by the Reference Desk in the library for assistance from Student Computing Support.

Please note: The CofC-secure wireless network will not be affected during this upgrade. As a reminder, the CofC-guest network should be used by visitors only.  If you are a student, faculty or staff member, please visit http://wireless.cofc.edu to connect to the CofC-secure wireless network, which is more robust and secure.
