Two changes to the MSUnet wireless network are taking place on July 19, 
2014. At that time new IP ranges  35.20.0.0/17 and 35.22.0.0/17 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 35.20.0.0/17 for MSUnet 3.0 and 
35.22.0.0/17 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.
