Ensure a wireless and wired connection

Alerts | Aug 13, 2018 at 11:17 am

The Wake Forest wired and wireless certificates are being renewed on August 14 and your attention is required.

What are certificates:

These certificates provide secure network access by identifying and encrypting your login credentials. In essence, they are digital passports, used to confirm that your device is connecting to an actual campus network and not an impostor.

What you need to do:

  • Faculty, staff and students with Wake Forest University issued devices and/or those with personal devices may see a pop-up regarding trusting the certificate when connecting to the wireless and/or wired network. There is no security risk when this pop-up appears and you should accept the certificate to continue. The pop-up you see will be dependent on the operating system you are using. View the possible pop-ups here.
  • If you do not accept the certificate, you will not be able to connect to the campus network. You will need to visit the IS Service Desk, located in the Z. Smith Reynolds Library, for further assistance.

New Cable Television Provider for Wake Forest

Announcements | Jun 25, 2018 at 9:24 am

Beginning Wednesday, June 27, Wake Forest University will have a new provider for cable television services, Apogee, replacing Spectrum (formerly Time Warner Cable). The selection of Apogee was the result of a routine contract renewal and included a campus-wide selection process with Information Systems, University Procurement, Residence Life and Housing, Athletics, and the graduate schools.

During the transition between providers, there may be intermittent disruptions throughout the day. Minor outages may also occur on June 28 as the distribution system is tuned for the new provider. Information Systems apologizes for any inconvenience these disruptions may cause.

New channel lineup

The updated system provides a new, enlarged selection of channels, including many digital, premium, and music choice options. Visit the new channel lineup.

Synchronize the channels with your television

Televisions will lose synchronization with the old channel lineup and may show a static or a blank screen after the update. Follow these step-by-step instructions to restore the connection between your television and the campus cable television network.
