We held our annual 'Doc Welt Memorial' match this weekend... Once again, it was a wildly popular match with great attendance of over 150 people... It's become so popular that we are thinking about adding an extra day of shooting next year. Like previous years, we ran an open scoring network... Unlike previous years, we had many, many more people accessing the network this year... especially during the last half of the second day of shooting... Staff and some others shoot Saturday... Everyone else shoots Sunday... Eight stages. I have always run an open network because I know shooters like to check on their friends scores and follow what's going on during the match... This year it became problematic because the network slowed down and I had trouble pulling scores late in the match... scoring tablets would drop off the network... It was sort of a Denial Of Service (DOS) attack, but not malicious... It was just people wanting their scores... The more they all tried, the more congested the network got... I need to make a change before our next big match. I'm afraid it will get worse in the future... especially as we start to generate more data per user... It looks like I have two options: password protect the network, or get a higher powered router... or I guess maybe both. Do those of you running big matches still leave your networks open? Is there a particular router that you have success with for large matches?
