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 thought it was quite good. I also think that the IETF wireless has
gotten its act together recently as well;
I suspect that Joel Jaeggli has had something to do with this.
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.
