Problems with the Dartmouth wireless SNMP data collection

The original Dartmouth wireless network study used SNMP to query the college’s Cisco 802.11b access points. The perl scripts that performed the SNMP queries suffered from some problems, in that they queried inappropriate SNMP values, or misunderstood the meaning of other values. This data was also used in a subsequent analysis. The same scripts were used to collect data for a subsequent study of another wireless network. This document outlines these problems and indicates which of the data collected by the original scripts may be invalid.
