Network Maintenance in Select Campus Buildings

Effective Dates: March 25, 26, & 27, 2018

Academic and Institutional Technology will be doing network maintenance in several campus buildings over a few days. During the maintenance, your computer will briefly lose its connection to the wired network, and when it reconnects, it will have a new IP address.

Key Benefits and Features

This is standard maintenance that fixes known issues.

Impact on College Community

The maintenance schedule will take place as follows:

  • Sunday, March 25, starting at 8:00 PM we will be performing maintenance in the Chrouser Sports Complex.
  • Monday, March 26, starting at 9:00 PM we will be performing maintenance in the Student Services Building and Edman Chapel.
  • Tuesday, March 27, starting at 9:00 PM we will be performing maintenance in Blanchard Hall.

During the maintenance, computers in the building will briefly lose their connection to the wired network, and when it reconnects, it will have a new IP address. For most people, a new IP address will not affect any systems or programs. However, if you currently use a fixed IP address for one or more programs or systems, you may need to manually update the system’s settings with the new IP address.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Academic and Institutional Technology at 630.752.4357 (HELP) or by email at ait.service.desk@wheaton.edu.
