We have lost ResNet service in Churchill hall.

The outage has been caused by a power problem starting at about 20:50 19/5/09. We apologise for this outage, we do understand that this is a bad time to be without access to ResNet.

We are currently waiting for a visit from the universities electricians to restore the power.


Power + ResNet restored at around 11:40 20/5/09

Wireless printing

Did you know that you can print from your own laptop on the wireless network to public printers in the Computer Centre or Arts & Social Sciences Library? We’ve just launched a new setup wizard to make this easy – see to try it.

Unfortunately we had an equipment  failure here over the weekend that left various residences on St Michaels hill disconnected from ResNet. The equipment has now been replaced and service is back to normal.
