Windows 7 desktop computers on network again

Windows 7 desktop computers on the library’s 2nd floor (Alcoves and Media Lab) are now able to connect to the campus network and thus the internet again as of 11:30 am, September 11, 2012.

From Campus ITS:

“The UTHSC wired network is also being re-configured to remove NAC restrictions. If you attempt to login to the Cisco NAC & receive an error such as “Invalid Username/Password” or any other error, just MINIMIZE the Cisco NAC window, & proceed with your business. There are no NAC restrictions to limit your access to any IT resources, even though the Cisco NAC window is showing an error.”


Windows computers not able to access network

Due to the campus network client issue today (Tuesday, September 11, 2012), Windows 7 desktop computers on the library’s 2nd floor (Alcoves and Media Lab) are unable to connect to network and thus the internet.

Our iMacs (Media Lab and EClassroom) are able to connect, as well as both MacBook and Windows laptops available at the Circulation desk.
