Does that mean we are going to have a field practical this month on hostile
war driving for dummies?

I think it's someone who has a bad case of MMS (My Mate Says....) and thinks
it's safer to turn the gear off and on, but I find it interesting that it's
sufficiently badly configured that even when it's on Channel 11, it still
can cause more than enough interference to make our equipment unusable.

I may have done my deductive reasoning, but short of sitting in Garema place
with a spectrum analyser, the fact that when the AP is up, our gear (and to
a lesser extent, AZURE's) cannot be associated to leads me to believe that
this is the root of our problems.

I'm impressed that someone is sufficiently security conscious to actually
turn their AP off religiously. I presume all attempts to narrow down its
physical location have failed? Sounds like a job for a Pringles can and
Kismet or something...
