State Of The Map 2010/Routers

Hey all,

I'm a member of the SOTM organizing team and would like to ask if some of you could bring your WIFI router.

There is a Cisco WIFI network with zillions of APs at the venue but it's a roaming one so it'll fill up after 253 (or so) leases. However a lot of wired bandwidth is available so we want to setup a few additional WIFI networks in the venues rooms just to be sure.

If you can bring a router please put your name on the wiki at:

I think 4 will be enough and I'll be bringing mine so 3 more are needed.

Some remarks:

  • Your cooperation will never be forgotten and you will probably get a free pass into heaven.
  • I think Linksys routers would be the safest choice
  • Spain power plugs are Europlugs so UK plugs is probably not a good idea.
  • I need to set this up on thursday before the conference so I would like to meet you and pick up your router thursday morning in Girona.
  • Please allow me to hard-reset if necessary (so backup your configuration)
  • Check if it's ok to bring it through customs if you're flying.
  • Insurance might not cover this so it's on your own risk (just to be sure).

Thanks in advance! 19:43, 29 June 2010 (UTC)
