RESOLVED - Network Services Down in Various Locations

ITS is working with our primary Internet Service Provider to restore services as soon as possible.  Our ISP has identified an issue on their network that appears to be the source of the problem.

Users at Riverfront should be fine with all services.

Corktown users will not be able to reach the Internet but may be able to reach some services on the McNichols campus.

WIFI on McNichols and dorm connectivity should work fine.

Blackboard will essentially not function like it should.  Pages may display but the authentication will be problematic.

More detail as we have it available.
