On Friday, March 13th, we changed the SSL certificates for MSOE-Wireless. The old certificates expired later that weekend. This caused some problems with authentication and would not allow authenticated users to connect from Windows clients. Windows would only see the old certificates, and would not allow a connection with expired certs.
In the interest of getting students, faculty, and staff connected to wireless and limiting any interruption in connectivity, we removed the authentication aspect from the MSOE-Wireless connection. Windows devices would have automatically reconnected due to domain policy, but devices such as phones, tablets, and operating systems other than Windows may have had to be manually reconnected.
After rigorous testing, we believe we have corrected the issue with the expired certificates and will be enabling authentication on MSOE-Wireless on Thursday, March 19th at 6:00 am. The change should only take several seconds, but it will disconnect any currently connected devices. Again, due to domain policy, Windows laptops should automatically reconnect. You may need to manually reconnect your phones, tablets, and non-Windows OS devices. You may also be asked to accept the new SSL certificates. We will be testing the connections and monitoring wireless for problems.
Thank you in advance for your patience in regards to this issue. If you have any questions or complications, please contact the Helpdesk.
