Hi list,
I just read over: because I am on the PyCon ( ) 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.
