Details:      On Saturday, July 19th from 9:00 p.m. through Sunday, July 20th at 6:00 a.m., maintenance will be underway in the Physics Building to launch the UWM WiFi Service in the entire building. During this time, customers may experience connectivity issues with PROWLnet, the current wireless service.

The UWM WiFi Service will provide many more connection options than PROWLnet, as well as the secure, fast and reliable UWMWiFi option for faculty, staff and students. The launch of the UWM WiFi Service will also provide coverage in University assignable classrooms and lecture halls to meet the increasing need for wireless service in these classroom environments.
