Apple will be releasing iOS 8 Wednesday, September 17. We expect there will be a large number of campus users that will be downloading the software update to their Apple devices.  As a result, all campus users might experience some sluggishness on the network.  If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Help Desk at x3456, help@oswego.edu or 26 Lanigan Hall.

This fall semester introduces a few network changes for the students living in the residence halls.

New Wifi System

Personal Wireless Network Devices in Residence Halls

Students living in the residence halls should be careful not to add any personal wireless devices that could affect the operation of the campus wifi system.

Items such as personal wifi routers actually violate the Computer and Network Acceptable Use Policy agreed to at the time of Laker NetID/email activation as it extends the campus network.  Printers that have wireless capability can also pose network connectivity issues for others in the building.

Aug 24, 2014 | Labs Printing
CTS has made some changes to the printing in Marano Campus Center 206.  Anyone using that room for the Fall 2014 semester should be aware.
The computers in Marano 206 are now set up to print to the printers in room 207, across the hall.  This is based on low utilization of the previous 206 printer and the need to distribute printing across campus in a different way to maximize resources.
