Manoa Wireless Maintenance to Enable Broadcast Traffic

SUMMARY: Manoa Wireless Maintenance to Enable Broadcast Traffic
POSTED ON: 10/04/2012

DESCRIPTION: Maintenance on the Manoa wireless network will be performed to enable broadcast traffic on a trial basis to selected buildings.

Broadcast traffic on the wireless will allow the use of Bonjour for the iDevices and other broadcast protocols on the Manoa wireless network. Broadcast was disabled long ago due to the slowdown on the wireless but the new design of smaller networks may reduce the impact. Carving out the smaller network zones will require authentication using the login page when switching between wireless zones, but this does not impact devices that are registered for MAC address passthrough (see http://www.hawaii.edu/wireless/pt/ ).

The wireless broadcast zones are as follows:

Zone 1: Bilger Hall, Bilger Addition, Hamilton Library, Keller Hall, Paradise Palms, & Physical Science
Zone 2: HIG, Holmes, all Krauss, Kuykendall Hall & Annex, MSB, POST, Sakamaki, Student Health, & Watanabe
Zone 3: Admin Svcs, Bachman Hall & Annexes, Campus Center, Hemenway, Miller Hall & Sinclair
Zone 4: Architecture, BusAd, Crawford, Dean, George, Hawaii Hall, QLCSS, & Saunders
Zone 5: All Dorm Aruba APs
