Afternoon Wifi outage and CS Maintenance for today, Thursday, February 25th, 2016

In order to address an ongoing issue with our campus wireless solution, we must take down all wireless services today at 1:30 PM until roughly 2:30 PM. During this time, wireless services will be unavailable. According to our trending data, mid-afternoon is one of the least utilized times for wifi, so this will hopefully minimize the impact.

Also, beginning at 9:00 PM, Employee, lab and TEC Classroom PCs will receive critical security updates to Windows, Flash, Thunderbird, Firefox and VLC. Campus MACs will receive updates to Chrome, Java, Flash and Office. Employees are encouraged to log off but leave their computers on when leaving work for the day. This will assist the installation of these patches and minimize any impact.

Lastly, beginning at 9:00 PM and lasting roughly 30 minutes, several back-end systems will be unavailable as we install critical security updates and reboot the servers. This includes the CS Helpdesk system, the campus file server, print server, and the campus how-to wiki.

Computing Services thanks you for your patience and understanding as we perform these critical maintenance activities. As always, if you have any questions, please call the ASU Computing Services Helpdesk at 7741 or contact us via email at
