MIT Information Systems and Technology addresses internet disruptions

Mark Silis, Vice President for Information Systems and Technology (IS&T), addressed the “series of disruptions in service to MIT’s wireless network”  in an email to the MIT community on Feb. 15, 2023. According to IS&T, the connection issues stemmed from a series of recent updates made to improve “the security and stability” of MIT IT systems.
IS&T is “cautiously optimistic” that they have isolated the issue and will continue to carefully monitor the situation. Silis advised students and staff with trouble connecting to Wifi to restart their devices, check the MIT 3Down website for system updates, and email or call 617-253-1101.
