Email from a conference attendee (Hackers, nov 2007):
I am at a conference. there are many OLPCs here. They are interfering with the wireless here. They apparantly do this even when not officially trying to be connected to the network, just being powered on is enough.
When we get a report from the people who brought our own network and are running it about what the heck is wrong with the fool things we can decide whether to ban them from PyCON or if we have a technical fix for them which we can require OLPC users to run. or have a technical fix for our network.
Otherwise, 10 of the things eats a network which was designed to comfortably hold several thousand simultaneous users, or 200 people like us who use streaming video a lot.
