I just read over: http://www.nanog.org/mtg-0302/ppt/joel.pdf because I
am on the PyCon ( http://us.pycon.org ) team and last year the hotel
supplied wifi for the 600 attendees was a disaster (they probably were
not expecting every single one to have and use a laptop the whole
time). Joel's pdf was for a conference in 2002 or 3, so I am hoping
much has changed. But from what I have found, I think my hopes may be
just a dream.
Does anyone have any advice or URLs of more recent case studdies in
supplying wifi for 600 laptop wielding geeks?
How was the wifi at the resent nanog meeting?
I have heard of some success stories 2nd hand. one 'trick' was to have
"separate networks" which I think meant unique SSID's. but like I said, 2nd
hand info, so about all I can say is supposedly 'something' was done.
