Unplugged — Show 1 — Lugging That Damn AP

This is the first podcast from the Packet Pushers devoted to Wireless Networking. After Jennifer Huber joined the Packet Pushers on Show 14 — Bum Bugling on Cisco Clean Air we agreed that a wireless podcast about every month or so would be worth doing. Herewith, is the first episode of Packet Pushers Unplugged on wireless networking.

The Content

We talked briefly about MIMO antennas for 802.11n when used outdoors.

And then how to start learning about Wireless Networking. The most important thing to learn is a working knowledge of Radio Frequency and signal propagation.

The best place to start to learn is cwnp.com. It’s vendor neutral and highly recommended. Other recommended blogs and podcasts can be found at:



One of the best blogs is Jerome Henry wirelessccie.blogspot.com who is a Cisco Wireless CCIE.

And we touched on some common mistakes that people can make when they are starting out in wireless networking.
