Information Technology/Enterprise Network and Systems Services will be performing maintenance on the WPU Firewall System on Sunday November 5th, 2017 from 12:00am to 1:00am to improve network access performance. There should be no interruption of any WPU internal system resources. However, while maintenance is performed, there could be a chance of intermittent access to network resources. This could affect remote access to University resources and/or access to campus network resources. Please contact the office of IT at x4357 if this could present an issue during the above scheduled time.

We're currently experiencing issues with outside connectivity to some WP sites including http://wpunj.edu  and Blackboard. IT staff are investigating and should have the issue resolved shortly. Updates to follow. From : 10/16/17 06:00 PM

Monday 10/23 12 p.m. update:  The vendor's ETA on the release of their patch has been pushed back to Monday 10/23. Assuming the updates are released today, the wireless system maintenance will take place late on Monday evening.


Wednesday 10/18 9:30 a.m. update:  The vendor has not yet released the appropriate patches, but expects to do so on Friday. If the updates are released as expected, Information Technology will apply the updates over the weekend.


With recent news of the KRACK wireless vulnerability (see https://www.wired.com/story/krack-wi-fi-wpa2-vulnerability/ for more information,) Information Technology will be performing maintenance on the campus wireless network on Monday (10/16/17) evening in order to re mediate the recently identified vulnerabilities. During this timeframe, campus wireless access points will be unavailable for approximately 5 to 10 minutes as the devices are updated. 

On the wireless client side, University owned computers will be patched automatically by IT. Additionally, IT strongly recommends ensuring that personal devices are updated and patched accordingly as hardware vendors release related updates.

Thank you,
