Summer/Fall 2013 Updates 
Millikin University > Information Technology > Summer/Fall 2013 Updates
Over the summer, Millikin's Information Technology department has been hard at work on several projects to overhaul our network infrastructure.  Most buildings on campus have received substantial upgrades to their wired and wireless networking, and when classes begin, we will have Wi-Fi available all across Millikin's campus, including some outdoor spaces.  In addition to the upgrades made to the network, the campus Internet bandwidth has been increased by 150% to take advantage of the improvements.
As a part of this project, we made the decision to disable the unsecured wireless network MU-GUESTS.  This actually serves to increase wireless performance for both students (on the MU-RESNET network) and faculty and staff (on the MU-ADMIN network).  In addition, all wireless network traffic will now take place over a secured wireless connection in order to protect the security and data integrity of computers on our network.  Students, faculty, and staff alike can now use our wireless networks without risk of the many dangers of public Wi-Fi networks, such as data theft.
