Since about 7AM this morning, the University has been experiencing intermittent problems with its Internet connection. Users will likely experience the outages as an ERR_DNS_FAIL or ERR_CONNECT_FAIL error when trying to access websites hosted off campus.

We've been in contact with our service provider and they've indicated that the severe weather in Grahamstown is interfering with the microwave link that connects our campus to the Internet. As a result, they're unable to do anything about the problem until the weather clears.
