Sorry for the lack of updates... Been incredibly busy around here trying to get all of the networks setup and configured. Wireless is up and ready for action, just check out to register. Be sure to check out the new and improved instructions, as we issued a new cert for this year.

I hope everyone enjoyed this 20th Anniversary Edition of DEF CON. There will never be anything else like it!
