• Hi
    I am new to to world of wireless. I have been working in IT /Networking for a long time and recently WLAN had impressed me a great extend. I was planning to make a start but didnt know where to start. But looking at CWNA, I think this a right way.
    Can some one please help me identifying which products /brands I can choose from local makket to set up a lab between PCs, Laptops. I need some advice on NICs, PCMCIA, APs, Bridges, etc.

    Any direction will be great help. My budget is approx $100 to $150...


  • Guys

    after doing some search i hav identified following products for home lab.. do u experienced guys think if this is good of are there any other good products (value for money type)

    WRT54G --Linksys Wireless G Broadband Routers - ???¡ê58
    NetGear WAG511 - ???¡ê50
    A wireless PC card - ~???¡ê20

    Is this enough...

  • Try to buy all the components from the same vendor. I have used Lynksys with great sucess on several wireless networks I've setup.

    Some stores sell the bundle: Router, Access point, and NIC. 802.11 G is good but 802.11b better since it is a proven technology.

    Good luck and hope that helps.

  • i may be wrong in but what i understand WRT54G has router and access point as well. do i need a AP in addition to this, i dont think so ?

    also technologies were brough to market starting with b then a and then g. As I understand g is backword compatible with b. That is it supports 54mb and 11mb. am i wrong in my underswtanding...

    one of the reason i am trying to use latest kit is to use WPA/TKIP...
    thanks for tip .. i will try and use same vendor.. that will keep compatibility hasseles to its minimum....

  • I would also recommend to make sure the wireless router/AP has RADIUS support. So when you decided to go for your CWSP, you will not need to purchase another AP that supports that feature.

  • thanks for that tip


  • Well guys, I think I can recommend you something. For example, is a good site which can help you to increase your income with crypto. In my opinion, this information is useful for everybody.

    Yes, it is the right way, it helped me too. But the real right way is to make research before you do something as says the service which makes it for students. If you need to make some research papers, you can apply it.

  • Indeed, if I do not have enough time to write an essay or other academic tasks, then to avoid trouble, I always ask for help on the site . This decision was suggested for me by excellent students and I am very grateful to them for good advice.
