4/14/2014 10:34 AM – Update JC

The Upgrade of the YU-Wireless/Guest systems has completed successfully.  YU-wireless/Guest services have been restored and are operational.  The Ed Center SSID has been restored to its original password and is operational.  TNS is monitoring the systems but does not expect any issues.

There is one AP that we are aware that has not come back up.  It is located at Cardozo in room 1108.  ITS will be replacing this AP as soon as we can.  This means there may be degraded wireless service in the area around 1108.  Most likely Thursday or Friday of this week

Thanks for your time and consideration,

ITS Help Desk


4/9/14 11:51 AM – Update JC

Dear Students,

The Yeshiva University Information Technology Services (YU-ITS) will be doing a major upgrade to the wireless capabilities of Yeshiva University on the night of 4/13-14. This will affect the YUWireless and YUGuest networks. This does not affect wireless connectivity via Fios, wired connections, or any other outside Internet service.

The upgrade will take about 15 minutes between the hours of 3 AM and 4 AM on April 14.

To accommodate students who may be studying, ITS has made the following arrangements:

  1. The Educational Center wireless (EdCenter) will not be affected.
  2. If you require continuous wireless connectivity between 3 AM and 4 AM, that will only be available in the Educational Center.
  3. Please go to the Educational Center, change your SSID to “EdCenter”, and login using the password “edcenter1234”.
  4. The special password will be effective Sunday 4/13 from approximately 10 AM to Monday 4/14 at approximately 8 AM.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.
