WVU wireless networks unavailable 8 a.m.-2 p.m. Sunday, May 24

WVU wireless services, including WVU.Encrypted, WVU.Guest and eduroam, will be unavailable from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sunday, May 24 for important maintenance.

Information Technology Services is upgrading the authentication system that controls the University’s wireless networks. ITS also will be installing a new security certificate on the servers during this period. Wireless users who try to connect after this work is complete will be required to accept the new certificate.

For most users, a simple prompt will ask you to “connect” to confirm the new certificate. Please click “connect,” not “terminate.”

Some users will have to go into their WVU.Encrypted profile and scroll to find GeoTrust Global CA Root Certificate Authority. Check the box next to that name to accept the certificate. For configuration details, please visit http://it.wvu.edu/services/wireless/wvuencrypted/config.
