Re: [OOL] Is this how OOL does wireless????

The optimum wifi hotspot is not for business use its so cablevision customers can get internet access.

Is this business a cafe or restaurant or something?

No. It's an office. The public has as much right to use the wireless as they would to just walk in off the street and use the copier. And no, the owner is not my boss. Everyone seems to get their exercise jumping to conclusions.

No, you're just splitting hairs trying to find someone to validate that you should try and use it for your own use. If you never have any outsiders in the office who might benefit from it then have them remove it.

Nope. Cablevision has a vast number of Business installations. Most do not have OOL hotspots installed. What people are trying to figure out is why an install occurred at this location since Cablevision does not simply go into someplace without the owners permission and install Hotspots, yet you claim it happened here, so we are politely trying to figure why it could have occurred and politely not just saying you are full of __.

Here's an example of an indoor hotspot. All those blue icons are where Cablevision has installed indoor hotspots for their use of their customers.

Well put.

Well I'll grant you they didn't break in at gunpoint.

Like I said, the owner was not there. The staff, seeing the installer was not wearing a goalie mask or carrying a chain saw, let him go about his business. Whether CV actually explained what they were up to is highly doubtful. I would not call that informed consent. The owner was sure as hell surprised when he got back, especially when he learned his WiFi network was down due to the interference.
