Three Days of Public Wifi

So it’s been three days since I expanded the public wifi at 100 Prince Street using a mesh of three Meraki Minis.

In that time there have been 17 users of the network. Of those, 3 have been us — my iBook, Catherine’s iMac and our trusty rabbit. Of the remaining 14, the machine name identifies an Amanda, a Kritin, and an Ann; Amanda was the biggest user, transfering 176 MB. Bandwidth usage peaked on Friday morning at almost 450 kb/s, but has generally hovered in the 0-150 kb/s range.

Three users connected to the Meraki at the back of the house, 4 users connected to the one in the Coles Building, and the remaining 10 connected to the front of the use unit. A total of 1 GB has been downloaded and 62.9 MB has been uploaded.

As someone who works in the Coles Building, I’m curious about where your Meraki is?

It’s stuck on the second floor window at the Church Street end of the building inside the Government Members’ Office. It’s not there “officially.” It may be close enough to the 4th floor Archives area to offer some sort of coverage (in testing upon installation, it did stretch to the opposite end of the 2nd and 3rd floors). Let me know if you can see it wireless from where you are.

Someone will have to test it for us. No one up here has anything with wireless functionality.
