ETC and Psychology Network upgrades Tuesday and Wednesday

To: ETC Faculty and Staff
From: Computing and Information Services
Subject: ETC Network upgrade Tuesday, June 10, 2014 at 8am.

Next Tuesday, June 10th, at 8am, CIS will be upgrading the Ethernet (wired) network in the ETC. Wednesday, June 11th, at 8am, CIS will be upgrading the Ethernet (wired) network in the Psychology building. The network will be down briefly and we expect the upgrade will be completed by 8:30am each day. If you use the wired network you can help by shutting down your computer and printer before you leave Monday evening. The wireless network will not be affected by the change.

After the upgrade computers and printers connected to the wired network will have new Internet addresses, which may cause printing problems for some computers.

Updates and a resolution message will be posted here.

Please contact Computer User Services if you have any questions or concerns.
