Duke University's Wi-Fi network is having problems with the new apple iPhone. Built-in Internet wireless adapters on the new phone are crashing Wi-Fi access points by sending 18,000 data requests per second. Although other "Smart phones" have similar capabilities, only the iPhone has shown to be able to overwhelm the campus' network. Neither Duke, Cisco, nor Apple know why it's happening.
