I'm in Karlin I and am seeing the same alerts (which I've never seen before) but only on the ietf network, not ietf-hotel.

This is due to an issue surrounding TKIP on the APs. We're in the process of removing TKIP and forcing everyone to AES (which is more secure), but it's taking a bit longer than hoped. Stay tuned. In the mean time, as much as I hate suggesting it, use ietf-legacy. It should be unaffected.

Thanks, Jim!

Resolution: fixed
Status: assignedclosed

TKIP has been disabled throughout the IETF network. All encryption now uses AES, and the draconian measures that the WPA/TKIP standard require are no longer an issue.

I am closing this ticket. However, if you see this problem again please re-open this ticket.

And, of course, feel free to open another ticket if you have any network issues with the IETF network.
