Students deprived of Internet for 40 minutes

IT Services says engineers are investigating reason for lost connection.

The University’s network lost connection to the Internet last Tuesday evening. About 40 minutes later, connection to the Internet was restored.

An Information Technology Services status announcement posted online Tuesday said engineers were working on maintaining the connection and looking into what caused the problem. According to the announcement, connectivity was lost in Beijing, Hong Kong, and India where the University has international centers.

A source said the outage may have been due to a network card issue. A network card is a piece of computer hardware that connects a computer to a larger network, allowing data exchange.
