Submission + - Another city wide wireless project failing

An anonymous reader writes: The Madison Wisconsin's city wide wireless project built with Cisco is having setbacks because the signals are having various 'challenges'. Those include trees, hills, concrete and apparently entire brands of consumer wireless client devices. "... a PC user will get better service than a Mac user at the same location because the wireless cards in Macintosh computers are less powerful," according to Todd Anderson, Mad City Broadband technical project manager.
