Description

Hi, 

I experience intermittent WiFi at different places, e.g. at the cafe/bar on the mezzanine close to the IETF lounge entrance.  If I move to the IETF lounge, all WiFi is fine.  The signal at the cafe/bar is fine though, but I do see packet loss of about 25-75%.

Right now at the DPRIVE workshop in Hall III I also experience huge packet drop rates with ietf and eduroam SSID networks, both IPv4 and IPv6.  :-)

I use a MacBook Pro with macOS Sierra 10.12.5. 

Others doesn’t seem to see this large packet drop rate though.

Thanks,

— Benno

Benno,

Congress Hall III has had a number of reports, and the wireless team is looking into it. With regards to the cafe/bar, are you associating to ietf or ietf-hotel? We've got APs carrying the main IETF networks in the meeting space, but in the cafe area, we'd ask that you use ietf-hotel. If that's the case, and you're having issues, please do let us know!

Hi Jim, all,

Thanks.  I will switch to ietf-hotel at the cafe/bar.

Thank you for running the excellent network and your prompt reply!

Cheers,

— Benno

As we believe the Congress II/III issues have been resolved, I'm going to close this ticket. However, please reply to re-open if there's still anything outstanding.
