More IP-numbers for ru-wlan and Science (wireless)

This post is over 5 years old, it may be out of date.

Monday, March 4th 2013 at 18:00 hours, the number of IP numbers that is available in the FNWI buildings for ru-wlan and Science was doubled, as was announced shortly before. Because ru-wlan moved to a new range, users of ru-wlan lost connectivity for at most 15 minutes. There was already a plan to replace ru-wlan and Science within the FNWI buildings by the RU-wide Eduroam and ru-wlan, but the wireless network usage had grown so fast that we could not wait for this plan to be realized. The week before, some wireless users at times could not even get an IP address, although the lease time had been brought down to 30 minutes. Therefore this temporary measure became necessary on such short notice. Because there are more IP numbers available now, more users can nowswitch from Science to ru-wlan wireless, in preparation for the realization of the plan mentioned above.
