IPhones flooding wireless LAN

Funny when I first read about the Apple Iphone and how people where having problems with ATT on the day of launch, I thought they all have Wifi enabled to that should cause a few problems for Network Admins.

Well it appears that we are starting to see problems, the network administrators at Duke University, are reporting temporarily knocking out anywhere from a dozen to 30 wireless access points at a time.

apparently it’s due to misbehaving iPhones flooding the access points with up to 18,000 address requests per second, nearly 10Mbps of bandwidth, and monopolizing the AP's airtime.

let’s see how many seo’s in San Jose have Iphone and how the rest of us can’t get Wifi of our Laptops ..
