To aid with a research project by ICSA’s Wireless & Mobile Networking (WiMo) Group, we have asked IS to reconfigure the wireless access points for the top three floors of the Forum temporarily. For the month of September the 802.11a (5GHz) channels have been turned off on these floors’ APs, to minimise interference with the research project’s equipment.
We do not anticipate this causing problems for mobile devices, as 802.11g and 802.11n will remain available on the 2.4GHz channels as before. However, please do contact Support in the usual way if you have wireless problems in these or other parts of the Forum. Please contact the WiMo group directly with any questions about the research project.
The remaining floors of the Forum are not affected by this change.
