UIT no-longer supports the use of 802.11b Wi-Fi. The 802.11b protocol is very inefficient at sharing the radio channel among many concurrent users of the network. The presence of active 802.11b clients reduces network performance for all other users of Wi-Fi. Because of the of high-densities of Wi-Fi clients on-campus, 802.11b is not suited for use at York.
