Mozilla wifi location

I played with Mozilla wifi positioning a bit; I was not patient enough for full test, but mozilla was able to identify position of 105 points out of 9322 points tested, or about 1%. That's significantly better than GSM situation.

Anyway, upload of points I collected is now finished, so situation near Prague should improve rapidly.

What is expected range of wifi? Normally, 300 meters is quoted, but I frequently see way bigger distances in my testing. Is it possible that there are multiple transmitters with same MAC address?
