Description (last modified by kimquirk)
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.
