My experience of last guadec in Stuttgart: With about 300 people and video
streaming you can easily saturate a 10 mbit link to the internet; wireless
bandwith on the conference site usually isn't a problem (we had a 801.11b/g
network and noone complained); strongly consider a wired network as
backbone; also people like to connect themselves to this network if they
need bandwith to exchange between their laptops or if they don't have or
don't want to use a wifi card (yes, these people still exist).

power chords to connect to the power network.
