Happy mobile computing and Independence from wires and localisation.
Please find instructions given in CC website to set it up. We have tested it on mobile devices (Android, iOS etc) and laptops. Anybody with IITB LDAP/GPO login can connect to it. If you have any visitors, from outside IITB, our faculty can create temporary LDAP IDs and therefore make the WiFi setup available to them as well.
It is also installed in the UG lab, but owing to some limitations, we are unable to activate it now. We will try to find a quick solution to this and to install in other areas. Please let us know which other areas/labs you see more usage.
Though we had got it installed more than one month back, there was an issue for long with some rogue DHCP server (don't bother if you don't understand what it is) confusing the wireless setup and not allowing users to connect correctly. Please do not setup any DHCP servers in your labs/wifi-routers, unless you are very sure it has been set up correctly.
