Wireless Authentication Change
Penn State wireless is currently experiencing issues related to authentication. Users of the psu SSID are experiencing delays when connecting to wireless, and are being disconnected when roaming. These problem are load-related, and are worse when network utilization is highest, between 10:00 am and 4:00 pm. The precise cause if these issues is not known, but the authentication server infrastructure is suspected.
To help isolate the cause of these problems, ITS will configure a new RADIUS server and direct RADIUS activity from the buildings listed below to the new server. This change will be implemented during the maintenance window tomorrow morning, and will affect approximately 8000 users in these buildings.
This change will cause a brief disruption for anyone connected at that time. Users should be able to reconnect shortly thereafter.

Network activity will be closely monitored after the change.
Service may be affected starting on September 1, 2016 at 6:00AM. The estimated time of resolution is September 1, 2016 at 7:00AM.
