Shanky and other NetPros,

Good Morning. Shanky, I read your review of the Aeronet 1300, and I was quite impressed. Have you or anyone else done a review of the Aeronet 1400 Wireless Bridge?

I am putting myself into a position to attend the Wireless course offered by my local CNAP College. Until I can get into that class, would someone point me in the direction of some good whitepapers or extended documentation (200+ pages) to bring me up to speed with administration and support of these devices? At my organization, we had a very competent vendor do the install, and we are bringing the management company that will be managing our lease for Cisco Routers and Switches into the

management of the 1400s. I will obviously not be alone. I would like to understand these devices at the level of those folks that I will be calling to troubleshoot. I suspect that I will be fully managing these devices when our lease expires in three years.

Furthermore, does anyone have information on the evolution of the CNAP Wireless course? The Cisco Wireless LAN Support Specialist designation (WLANFE) appears to be discontinued. Does anyone know of the future of any of the CNAP Wireless programs or if a new program is in development? Thank you, and I hope to continue learning from your experience and knowledge.

Thank you, Beth. Your post was very helpful. I have printed the first two documents and added them to my documentation. Cisco has some very detailed documentation (200+ pages) for other pieces of hardware (switches and routers), and I was hoping there was similar documentation on how to implement, manage, and troubleshoot Aironet Bridges, Routers, and APs. I was looking for something to read that was newer that the Textbook used in the Cisco Networking Academy Wireless class, since the models described in the that text are several generations older. Thank you for your assistance.
