not really unless you want to want to be associated with one of 30
aps for the entire conference...
The problem I ran into was seeing a number of IBSSs, most of which
seemed to be using unallocated mac addresses. Unfortunately I did
not keep any notes of what I acutally did see.
I wished I could have told my 4.8 FreeBSD system to only associate
with one of a list of APs. I would have given it a list of all of
the real APs and told it to only choose one of those. Wildcarding
might have also been useful - I would have done (say) two mac address
ranges the real APs were using & ignored the rest.
