    I'm trying to run a wireless network at a tradeshow. One AP has 2.07 firmware and works fine. The other has 3.04 firmware and won't maintain a connection.
    Is it possible that the convention center is somehow "jamming" the wireless networks or am I just being paranoid? If they are somehow inhibiting wireless networks, why does the old firmware work OK? Is it more robust? Any words of advice would be a huge help. The show starts Monday. It's at McCormick Place in Chicago. Thanks in advance for the help.

    Stability is almost always one of the reasons for new versions of firmware being released. It is possible however that the 3.04 version is buggy and less stable. That being said, you should consider performing some sort of site survery to discover how many wireless networks/AP are around to determine the least used channel then set your AP to that channel
