The University's wirelessnetworks were down for about two hours on Sundayafternoon around 1:50 p.m. and were restored around4:05 p.m., according to Assistant Vice President for Communications Daniel Day.

Day said that a router had crashed, which had disrupted the University's wireless internet service to the entire campus. The router was later brought back online around 3:50 p.m. and internet service to the University was restored 15 minutes later.

"It will take several hours for service to be fully restored and there may be some residual email delivery delays," he added.

According to Day, the University does not anticipate any future outages in the near term. Day said the outage was unrelated to the hacking of the University's printers last week.
Andrew Auernheimer, a hacker who was involved in disseminating anti-Semitic flyers by hacking the University cluster printers, said that he was not involved in the outage.
