RESOLVED – Wireless issue

We are pleased to report that our MiddleburyCollege wireless network is now fully functional.

The MiddleburyBackup network will remain in place until 07:00 am tomorrow, July 27th. Your devices will automatically switch to the MiddleburyCollege network at that time (if they do not, please select MiddleburyCollege from the list of available networks).

Thank you so much for your patience while we worked to resolve matters. Again, we are sorry for the disruption.

Wireless Issue Continues — Temporary WiFi Network Created

We continue to experience issues with our wireless networks.  To provide network access while we work on a long-term solution we have created a new, temporary wireless network that will provide the same service as before:

Temporary network name:  MiddleburyBackup

Temporary password:  panthers (all lowercase, no punctuation, no spaces)

The temporary network will be removed from use once MiddleburyCollege service has been restored and is stable.  We will provide an update at that time.

Remember, you may connect successfully to our network using an Ethernet cable as our wired network is fully functional.

We are very sorry for this disruption in service and any inconvenience.  Thank you once again for your patience.

MiddleburyCollege Wireless Issue

We are experiencing an issue with the MiddleburyCollege wireless network and are working actively with our vendor to resolve matters as swiftly as possible.  We do not currently have an estimated repair time. You may connect successfully to our network using an Ethernet cable as our wired network is fully functional.  We are sorry for any inconvenience.

WebPrint Update: Vendor Patch Applied

ITS staff installed the vendor’s patch to our WebPrint services this past weekend and print jobs have been processing smoothly since that time.  We are optimistic that this resolved the earlier instability issues experienced by many.  We thank everyone for their patience during the troubleshooting process and apologize for any inconvenience.

As we move into the busiest phase of our language programs when the printing volume increases substantially, please note that opening and printing documents directly from labs, public computers, and faculty office spaces result in the fastest and most reliable printing (see option 1 at http://go.middlebury.edu/howtoprint).  Documents in cloud storage can be easily opened and printed from any networked computer, as can documents sent to yourself via e-mail.

WebPrint Issues

Our WebPrint services should currently be viewed as an unstable resource as over the past few days the system has repeatedly stopped, requiring our attention.  System staff are aware of the issue and are working with the vendor to resolve matters.  Please note that printing directly from labs, public computers, and faculty office spaces result in the fastest and most reliable printing (see option 1 at http://go.middlebury.edu/howtoprint).
