Access points in the Carpenter House will be replaced. This will improve wireless network connectivity, security and allow additional features to be available. Where possible this will be done in a staged approach ensuring the new Wireless AP's are in place running along side the legacy equipment. Network connectivity will be lost as clients re-authenticate to the new Aruba equipment.
New Aruba APs will be pre-provisioned in order to minimise any disruption.
There will be no need for contractors to access student rooms as APs are all corridor mounted.
The Wi-Fi service will be degraded during the time of this change and after the upgrade some users may be unable to connect to eduroam or other wireless due to the upgrade effecting some Intel wireless adaptors found in Windows laptops. Users are able to upgrade their wireless adaptors to resolve this issue. Please see link below for latest drivers information.
