CTS (Computing & Technology Services) has been working diligently in the last year to upgrade the campus data network. This past summer we began the upgrade and expansion of our administrative WiFi network.  Work continues, but CTS would like you to be aware of the following:

There are now two wireless networks:  W@SP and W@SPBYOD

W@SP (Wireless @ SUNY Potsdam) is our old network and is available in all the same places it was last year.  It will remain on until the new system is completely active.

W@SPBYOD is new and is available in some buildings (list below). When you join this network, you will be asked to log in using your CCA username and password.  Guests will be presented with the opportunity to register for limited access using any valid e-mail address.

The new network is available now in the following buildings:

Barrington Student Union
Carson Hall
Crane Commons
Crumb Library
Dunn Hall
Flagg Hall
Kellas Hall
MacVicar Hall
Morey Hall
Physical Plant Complex
Stillman Hall
Timerman Hall

You may notice new access points in other buildings, but they are still being tested and configured.  As new buildings come online, announcements will be made to the Network and Systems Status Blog [ http://blogs.potsdam.edu/network  ] and to the CTS Twitter and Facebook feeds.

If you have trouble connecting your wireless device to the new network, please report it to the CTS Helpdesk by sending e-mail to helpdesk@potsdam.edu

In other exciting news, Apogee has replaced Time Warner as the Internet provider in our residence halls.  To use Apogee’s network you must register and create an account at http://myresnet.com. Problems accessing or using Apogee’s service should be directed to Apogee Technical Support by calling 855-410-7380
