Wireless Internet access frustrating at Comdex
Posted: 20-Nov-2002 [Source: USA Today]

[W-LAN at COMDEX built for 300 users becomes inaccessible as demand for connections exceeds supply. Over 125,000 people are expected at the week-long tech show.]

COMDEX, Las Vegas -- "Everyone from Microsoft's Bill Gates to booth pitchmen are hyping the joys of wireless networking at this week's Comdex trade show, but an attempt to make the technology useful to conference attendees has been less than perfect.

Many users who tried to connect their wireless-enabled laptops and handheld computers to the wireless cloud were greeted with error messages sputtered back by their Web browsers.

The problem, conference organizers say, was that demand for the free wireless service was far greater than anticipated.

"It's an unprecedented amount of usage," said Geoff Horne, a network engineer for Key3Media Group, the conference's organizer."
