Two changes to the MSUnet wireless network are taking place on July 19,
2014. At that time new IP ranges – 18.104.22.168/17 and 22.214.171.124/17 will
be added and 802.11b clients will no longer be supported. Please note,
one or both of these changes may require you to take action.
New IP Address
IT Services will add new IP ranges to MSUnet 3.0 and MSUnet Guest 3.0 on
July 19, 2014. The new addresses are 126.96.36.199/17 for MSUnet 3.0 and
188.8.131.52/17 for MSUnet Guest 3.0. Please update your firewalls
accordingly to allow traffic from these ranges if desired. These
additions to the wireless network are in part to support the expansion
of service in the residence halls.
802.11b Wireless Disabled
After July 19, 2014 IT Services will disable the 802.11b protocol. Any
device that relies on this protocol will no longer work. While the
number of devices affected are few, IT Services will work with those
individuals to find solutions to any problems this change may cause.
This protocol is being disabled to improve wireless performance as
802.11b slows down the network campus-wide.
If you have questions about the upcoming changes to the wireless
network, please contact the Support Desk at (517) 432-6200.
