History of Wireless LAN Professionals.com

Our tag line truly is what this site, and all the podcasts are about.

“A place to educate, inform, entertain, and inspire”

A quick little background on my path to becoming a Wireless LAN Professional myself.

I started back in the Novell days with the CNA–>CNE–>CNI–>MCNE–MCNI process. Then moved through the same with Microsoft MCP–>MCSE–>MCP–MCSE+I. Then followed a path through the Cisco track with CCNA–>CCDA–CCNP–>CCDP. There were also the little side paths through Linux, Security, Web Design, and a bunch of CompTIA certs.

I got a bit tired of continually chasing the ‘next best certification’ and decided to settle down and focus on a single topic. I happened to choose Wireless LANs at an appropriate time.

So I got into the CWNA–>CWSP–>CWAP–CWNE process and achieved CWNE #3.

Since 2002 I’ve been totally focused on the Wireless LAN arena. Back in 2004 I thought to start an ‘association’ to help link the Wireless Vendors with the Wireless LAN end-users. It was a good idea, but a bit too early (you can see the results at the old web site of iWLANpro.org)

In the past eight years of working exclusively with Wireless LANs – consulting, designing, and teaching about Wireless Networks. In this time I’ve met some amazing folks. People I’ve learned much from. I’ve taught literally thousands of people and consulting with nearly a hundred companies.

But, and here’s the main reason for this site. I have lost track of many of these amazing people.

So this site is dedicated to those who are involved in the craft of Wireless LANs – folks who work day-in, day-out with Wireless networking. A place to come and learn from, hang out with, and be inspired by other like-minded individuals.

  1. Howdy Keith,

    I’ve only recently discovered your wireless lan weekly podcast but I think it’s just fantastic! I’m quickly working my way through the 10 most recent episodes that are available in iTunes but I was wondering if there is a way to get episodes 1-44 into iTunes as well? Is there some trick to making it see older episodes or can they only be heard directly from your website? Keep up the great work!!

    Cheers,

    Frank
