Installing a WLAN @ Ameristar Casino, Black Hawk, Colorado

What’s it like to install a wireless network in a casino?  With the help of two others, we lit up ~200 APs at the Ameristar in Black Hawk just a few weeks before the grand opening on 9/29.  This was a ton of work, but it was worth it.  Here are some photos that I snapped.

Be sure to leave comments over at the Cybertool projects page. About Benjamin PeroveBen has been associated with a broad spectrum of...
