Well, I know I’ve come to you already requesting some votes-if you somehow missed my prior post, I was nominated for a 2019 WiFi Award, specifically for Rookie of the Year. It’s a great honor just to be considered, and I am appreciative of that. Well, apparently I had a better year than I thought … More 2019 IT Blog Awards-Please Vote!
No, it’s not a political post. I promise, unless there’s something WiFi relevant, I won’t ever do a political post here. That said, this IS a post asking you to consider voting…for the finalists of the first-ever WiFi Awards. If you’ve been paying attention to them on Twitter this week, they’ve been announcing the finalists … More Please Take Some Time To Vote…
Sometimes, we can hear an important lesson many times, and while it registers…that doesn’t mean we won’t still overlook things. This is one of those stories, and I am sharing it because, well, it’s a good learning experience…and perhaps it will save someone else a bit of time, stress, pain or troubleshooting. Any time we … More Knowing Your Client Devices Is Important
You could say I’ve been waiting a while to write this…so here goes… Going back probably 7 or 8 years ago, my exposure to WiFi was primarily as the home IT admin (Dad, the WiFi is slow!) or serving as a project manager on WiFi related projects, and I loved getting into the weeds with … More One Journey Is (Nearly) Complete!

Each of them so far has been a learning experience. I did a lot of listening to podcasts and reading blog posts … More Warehouse Full Of Learning
Recently, I completed my CWSP. With that test in the bag, my required four CWNP exams to satisfy the CWNE requirements were taken care of. I took a couple days to get back to a normal routine, but before long, I was working to prepare my application. For those of you who’ve done it, you … More A Peek At The New CWNE Application Process
There’s been a lot of talk over the past year or two about the future of WiFi and wireless. Especially of late, most of the focus is on two particular areas: 5G and WiFI 6, otherwise known as 802.11ax. That these two are getting a lot of headlines is not a shock. Those in support … More Oversimplifying WPA3 And The Dragonfly Handshake
I believe this is something that many in the industry will read and say “well thanks, Captain Obvious”…but if you are starting out, not everything is so obvious to you just yet. The importance of walking a site may just be on that list of things that could be taken for granted, and I have … More The Importance Of Walking A Site
For the experienced WiFi engineers reading this (if you give it a second or two), what I am about to share is going to maybe make some cringe. Or shout an expletive or two. Look, I get it…this one was a learning experience, and we all have them a time or two in our careers. … More Design It Once, Design It A Half Dozen Times…
I will be honest-before Apple’s big iPhone event on Tuesday, I had hoped for WiFI 6 in their new flagship phones…but I expected that not to happen. The reality is, Apple has never generally rushed to market when it came to new WiFi or cellular standards. Why would they be any different when it came … More Will The New iPhone Drive WiFi 6 Adoption?
