IT upgrades will affect Daniels Building 3/2 and 3/4

DoIT is conducting more upgrades to our IT networking equipment. Here are the dates and floors being affected:

  • Tuesday, March 2nd:  Floors 4, 5, and 6 of the Daniels Building
  • Thursday, March 4th: Floors 1, 2, and 3 of the Daniels Building

During both days, the upgrades will take place between 9am – 3pm. This will only effect computer/systems with a wired connection to the internet. Some devices on these floors may experience a network outage lasting no longer than 30 seconds. If you experience a loss of internet/network connectivity lasting more than 30 seconds, please reach out to CompHelp@chem.wisc.edu.

This WILL affect power to some devices that receive BOTH power and network connection through the same ethernet cable. For example, we have many VOIP phones that receive power and data through the same cable. These will be affected but should reboot once network connection is restored.

Again, if any outage lasts longer than 30 seconds, please reach out to CompHelp.
