1. New version of wi-fi system is being installed. For now, it is temporary treatment due to limited budget and tight timeline. Permanent installation will commence in about a year.

2. New version of wi-fi system will enhance the bandwidth by a factor of five. Therefore, no more need for private routers.

3. OIT will test the new wi-fi system from Saturday 04/28 6 am to Sunday 04/29 6 am. There will be a wi-fi outage during the test. Wired connection will still work.

4. OIT is sending a request for a RCC (Residential Computer Consultant). RCCs deal with computer problems before OIT sends a staff member to Lawrence. It is a paid position.

5. New wi-fi system will block/filter unnecessary broadcasts.
