About The WiFi For Beginners PodcastSocial Media Pic

Thanks for dropping by my web site – I hope you find the information on my site of real value if you’re exploring the world of Wi-Fi networking.

I put this podcast together for a couple of reasons. Firstly, I am a huge fan of podcast media. Podcasts are a great way to consume information and entertainment if you’re on the move and don’t have time or the opportunity to watch a screen. I love to listen to podcasts whilst I’m driving, running, commuting on the train, flying and even sitting in bed at the end of the day. They have been entertaining and educating me for in excess of 7 years now.

The second reason I put the podcast together is that I meet many people in my day to day role as as Wi-Fi network consultant who know quite a bit about networking in general, but seem to have little or no knowledge about Wi-Fi networks. Given the demands on everyone’s time these days (particularly in IT environments), it’s no surprise. So many people have to look after such a diverse range if technologies (routing. switching, voice, security, servers…etc.), I’m not surprise they don’t have time to add yet another technology to their ever-growing pool of responsibility. I thought that an easy-to-consume overview of WiFi technology would provide a useful introduction to those who probably need to know a little more about Wi-Fi, but just don’t have the time to sit down and study.

I’m hoping that this podcast will provide you with a nice easy introduction to Wi-Fi networking. It will hopefully provide you with sufficient depth to start to understand the technology in a little more detail, but won’t be a technical deep dive that is going to become very boring very quickly, which is especially important in an audio-only format.

I’ve structured the subject matter so that hopefully you will be able to listen to the podcasts and understand the material being discussed, without the need to consult any other material such as video or screenshots. This obviously limts some areas that I can discuss, as they would require a visual element, but I’m hopeful that I can still provide a useful depth of information to you. I’ve also created a set of slides (which I use to prompt me during the audio recording process) which provide a written overview of the areas discussed. You can download and view these if you would like to keep them for future reference. I’ll also post a quiz on this web site so that you can test yourself on the material we’ve covered.

I hope you find real benefit and value from the podcast and information I present on this site. Good luck with your Wi-Fi journey!

Nigel.
