[Chicago-talk] In Search of Wireless

I take it that each room will have a net connection that we can use for
the routers? If that's the case then we would need at least 1 for each
room, possibly 2 for the best coverage.

Is there some kind of common area that would need to be covered as well?

There will be some spillover connectivity if the rooms are close together.
We would need to set the SSID to the name of the conference room so that
people can connect to the proper router.

If we can place one at the front and one at the rear of the rooms, they
should cover the whole room as well as some area outside the rooms.

I think I can scare up at leat one Netgear that isn't doing anything,
possibly 2.
