CTS 073 - Roundtable II WiFi Issues

Roundtable II

Thank you for listening to today’s episode. We have gathered three individuals to share Wi-Fi issues with the listeners and to discuss how they resolved them. That is the topic of the roundtable.

In this episode we have:

  • Glenn Cate
  • Gurpreet Singh
  • Jon Foster

We all come across issues on the wireless network. Some are the most common issues you’ll come across while others are a little farfetched and out there.

Wi-Fi Issues

Glenn Cate, CWNE #181 and from Episode 061, gives provides us with the context of a perfect storm. Everything that can go wrong went wrong. And none of it was on the technical side!

Gurpreet Singh works for a VAR in Canada. He gave us two Wi-Fi issues which required use of spectrum analysis. Who doesn’t like doing SpecAn?? His issue shows us we need to know everything used in the environment. I’ll give you a hint.. It has to do with conference rooms.

Jon Foster is a presales engineer for a VAR in the UK. Like Rowell, Jon provided an issue from higher education. A lot of the best issues come from there. Another has to do with physical security and who doesn’t like putting physical security components on the wireless network?

François talked about a cold situation. And I mean that too, physically cold. What could go wrong. Just select an AP and put it up, right? François also provided two issues, the second issue prevented someone from sleeping. Now what does that have to do with Wi-Fi?

Rowell talked about SpecAn at a hotel during a conference. And someone from the audience even asked why Wi-Fi was slow. Well let us show you!
