We are seeing an issue with connectivity from 802.11n clients (802.11 a/b/g - pre-n - are fine) to about 15% of UNC campus wireless access points using the UNC-1/WEP SSID. If you find that you are unable to connect to wireless in an area where you could before with UNC-1, there are two options: (1) disable 802.11n mode (should be in your adapter's properties setup) or (2) configure your machine for UNC-Secure (per help.unc.edu). Either of those workarounds should work.
The Campus IT are working with the vendor on this issue but have no expected time of resolution at this point.
