Sharing User Experiences with OLPC XO Wifi Connectivity

The wiki page Wifi Connectivity summarizes experience connecting OLPC XOs to WiFi. But, it takes some effort to create such a summary; moreover, there is necessarily a delay, since it may be premature to correct an entry for a particular wireless router based on 1 learning, when there are 100 preexisting learnings; finally, such summaries are always subject to a degree of thrashing as issues are worked out.

It is therefore often good to record raw user experience first, and summarize later.

The page Sharing User Experiences with OLPC XO Wifi Connectivity has therefore been created for such raw records.

When trends become obvious we of course invite peopl to summarize as best they can. Nobody wants to have to read through dozens of raw user records to figure out if there is a problem with a particular router; but, conversely, it is equally bad to have a summary say "There are no problems with a router", when people have encountered such problems, but have just not yet figured out exactly where the blame lies.

ISSUE: should the raw user records be individual pages, or sections? I'll go with separate pages for now. It can always be refactored later.
