RF Behaviours

In this episode, we talk about the different behaviours that an RF signal can have while travelling through different environments.

This will help you better understand what happens to Wi-Fi signals as they travel away from their transmitters.

This is a very nice episode if you are studying for your CWNA or if you are just starting in Wi-Fi.
