Scheduled Maintenance

June 2, 9 pm - 10 pm: Stocker & Walter Hall wired & wireless Internet

  • We will be upgrading the network switches that serve Stocker Engineering Center and Margaret M. Walter Hall on June 2 between 9 pm and 10 pm. Some time during this window, each building will experience a 10 minute wired and wireless Internet outage. VoIP telephones will reboot during this time as well.

June 3: Discontinuing support for 802.11b WiFi

  • Starting June 3, the Ohio University wireless network will no longer support the 802.11b protocol.  If you have a device that still uses 802.11b, you will need to upgrade to 802.11 ac, n, g or a.  With built-in wireless adapters, you may need to replace the entire device if you wish to continue using the university's wireless.

June 6, 3 am - 8 am: 5 minute Internet outages for regionals, Ridges and University Courtyard apartments

  • Some time during this window, OHIO regional campuses will experience a 5 minute Internet outage, while the Ridges and University Courtyard will experience two 5 minute outages.  These outages could affect someone completing an assessment or exam in Blackboard if they are physically in the affected locations during the work, but otherwise should have minimal impact.

    This work also will cause two 30 second interruptions to the university's main Internet connection.  This could interrupt an exam or assessment for someone who is logged into Blackboard when the blip happens.
