Quarantined Devices

If you are able to connect to the network, but are unable to access any websites, there is a possibility that your device has been quarantined. Devices can be quarantined for reasons including, but not limited to, DMCA violations and malware. If your device has been blocked, you should receive correspondence to your UCSD email letting you know that your device has been blocked.

What can I do to get unblocked?
