I thought I should follow up after the investigations we made
yesterday using my laptop.

This morning I did not attend a session, but used wireless from the
3rd floor lobby area near the restrooms.  The connectivity was mostly
OK except from one instance where I lost AP association.  When my
laptop regained association, it was with a different AP, so perhaps
the first AP bounced or kicked me off:

Current BSSID:          [ 00:0b:85:09:50:af ] before
Current BSSID:          [ 00:0b:85:04:3c:af ] after

In the first afternoon session in Salon D, the connectivity was again
OK, although it may not have been a strenuous test because there were
not very many people in the big room.  I lost association twice during
that session.

In all these cases, though, after re-association, the connectivity was
fully restored, unlike previously.
