Submission + - Conference Wireless Network Report: PyCon 2010 (

jafo writes: There's been a lot of teeth gnashing going on recently about broken wireless at conferences. We just wrapped up PyCon 2010, with around 600 (out of 1,000) attendees simultaneously accessing the volunteer-run network, and response has been fairly positive. 2.4GHz (802.11b/g) continues to be problematic, but most users were on 5.2GHz and associating at 130mbps (with a 100mbps link to the net). My PyCon 2010 wrap-up reveals all the secrets of how we did it, including pretty bandwidth and user graphs.
