A Wireless Snapshot

Ever wonder just how many devices might be out there . . . here’s a snapshot of we what see connecting to our wireless network right now (11:00 a.m. on 5-23):

  • 540 devices connected to Guest.
  • 76 devices were connected to DASD-1.
  • The busiest access points (AP)? You would be surprised by the stats for the last 24 hours. If it’s lunch time at DAHS, those access points are among the top ten. Once lunch is over, the elementary Library Media Centers move up the list. If their iPod Touches are in the library, those devices are on the constant lookout for an AP.
  • Number of errors? 0. Our software also collects information on AP’s that go down or errors in connecting. All of those were at “0” for the last 30 days.
