Windows 8 Wireless Issue

Hello Windows 8 users,

Unfortunately there is an issue with the new Windows 8 OS and connecting to WPA2 encrypted wireless networks (wesstudent and wesfacstaff).  While this issue is being resolved, either connect to the wesguest wireless network or use the wired network via ethernet.  We will update you as soon as this issue is resolved.

In the meantime, if you have any questions come in to the ITS Student Helpdesk (Exley 116) or gives us a call at (860) 685-4000.
