The MiddleburyCollege network went live on Tuesday, and devices of all kinds have been connecting successfully since. However, we want to give people more time to make the switch, so we will not be removing midd_secure on Monday but rather on the morning of Wednesday, March 11th. We anticipate that Midd-standard will be removed the following week as planned, with a possible delay of one to two days to allow time for those who need to move to the special MCPSK network that will be introduced on Wednesday.
Please take a moment now to connect your device to MiddleburyCollege so you won’t have anything to worry about as we retire midd_secure and Midd-standard. You may see a warning about the certificate, but it is safe to continue and connect. The most alarming warning comes from Windows 7, and looks like this:
Again, in this case it is safe to continue connecting – the certificate is valid, but some devices do not recognize it by default.
Special Note: College-owned Windows 7 laptops should not see the above certificate warning, but may see the following message:
This is misleading; if you click Close and wait 1-2 minutes, the connection should complete successfully.
If you are unsuccessful in connecting to Middlebury College after a minute or two, we suggest rebooting your device and trying again. Any warnings should only appear once – after that, your computer or device should save the configuration settings and reconnect quickly and smoothly from then on.
As usual, please direct specific issues to the Helpdesk; broad questions should be asked here so everyone can benefit from the discussion.
