Wireless access points damaged, students advised to use Ethernet
As a result of the Cambridge-wide power outage on Thursday, Nov. 29, several wireless access points around campus were damaged, according to an email from MIT Information Services & Technology. IS&T is working to replace the devices, but they do not have enough replacement devices in stock to replace all of them at the present time. Most of the access points will not be repaired until new units arrive, though the message did not say when the new units would arrive or when the repairs would be complete. Until then, IS&T recommends connecting to the MIT network via Ethernet connections whenever possible. Students may visit the IS&T office in E17-110 to pick up an Ethernet cable.
