Wi-Fi system security upgrade on Friday
by David Franklin - Wednesday, 13 September 2017, 1:31 PM

Hi all

Great news. We have just been informed today that the major security upgrade for our wireless system is now out of beta test and available for installation so we have booked a slot at 11.00am this coming Friday to get the works undertaken prior to the main influx of our new students.

Once the upgrade is complete you will see very little change it is all mainly in the back end.

However, and there always is one... the upgrade will take about 90 minutes to do and during that time there may be some people who cannot log onto wifi, if you are already connected all should just continue to work as it does at the moment.

Please let me know if you have any events scheduled during the upgrade that must have wifi so we can try to reschedule, but we do need to get this done soonest so our users are protected with the latest security available.
