Description

Follow up from my visit to the NOC just now (2011-03-26 16:20): I get a BSSID of 0:0:0:0:0:0 attempting to connect to any of the IETF SSIDs. This happens after a reboot as well. I have now switched to the Hilton network.

Jim said in earlier mail that it might be an issue with MacOS 10.6.6; I am running 10.6.7.

Paul,

We identified several spots in the public areas that coverage was a little spotty and have added several access points.

Could you try it again at your convenience and let us know what you see?

At 0849 this morning (corrected time), I was autoconnected to the a-1x a similar thing. I first saw BSSID 0:17:DF:A2:99:C6, but then it went to 0:0:0:0:0:0 within a minute.

I then tried using the 1x network and it is working fine for now. I'm connected to BSSID 0:17:DF:AA:3F:43, which has an RSSI of -83. We'll see how this goes today.

Aw, crap. Ignore the previous comment. The 1x connection at 0:17:DF:AA:3F:43 just died (went to 0:0:0:0:0:0), so I am back on the Hilton net.

Paul, are you seeing this in a particular physical location or is it happening throughout the venue?

comment:7 Changed 7 years ago by paul.hoffman@…

I am only trying this from my room, 3036. I have not tried out in the venue yet.

Paul,

I looked at the screenshot that you sent Jim yesterday. It appears that your room is *JUST* at the edge of the range for the access points.

As of now, we have taken over the back end of the "hilton" ssid - if you connect to it, you will get full IETF network (including v6). The signal, in some places, is not spectacular, however. We have also taken over the back end of the hotel wired connections. This is a MUCH faster and more reliable connection. The only drawback is that it does not have v6 (a limitation of the hardware the hotel uses to aggregate it's guest room connections).

Please let us know if you are seeing this issue in various places throughout the venue.

I'm going to put this ticket in a 24 hour hold pending more input.

Paul,

Just wanted to touch base with you that all is good. Are you still seeing this issue?

It seems to definitely be related to my room location.
