Is This Why Wireless Is So Slow?


I swear, it took me 10 minutes to get access to TTU-WLAN-1 from the top floor of Brown Hall today. At least one other WAP not shown above was on channel 11 earlier — I think its name was “Free Internet Access”.  So there are 5 networks running on channel 1 (one scrolled off the top of the window) which I assume aren’t running in some kind of infrastructure mode, 4 obviously separate named networks on channel 6, and 2-3 on channel 11.

I’m just guessing from this Google result for multiple access points one channel that this isn’t the best way to organize things.

By comparison, from my office in Clement, 3 access points visible in the site monitor. All TTU-WLAN-1, all separate channels.
