Wireless Network Service Degradation

Wireless Network Service Degradation

What is happening?
The UNF Wireless network’s authentication for personal devices is experiencing intermittent issues when devices attempt to join the UNF-Wireless network.

What devices are impacted?
The impact is currently on personally-owned (BYOD) devices that connect to UNF-Wireless using the ClearPass OnGuard security software.

What is being done?
UNF ITS is aware of the issue and are working to resolve this as quickly as possible.

Is there a workaround?
Yes. If your system is unable to join UNF-Wireless, it is possible to join the UNF-Visitor network as a temporary workaround. More information about the Guest network is available.

Zero Password Resets

Individuals at UNF now have the ability to keep their UNF ID passwords forever. Notifications every six months asking to reset passwords will no longer appear. Passwords will only need to be changed if an individual wishes to or the password is suspected of being compromised. ITS has been working with the State Universities, the Florida Board of Governors and state auditors to adopt a zero-password reset policy. The Florida Board of Governors has formally adopted this standard, clearing the way to make this change. Learn more about Zero Password Resets at UNF.
