Re: CCIE WIRELESS

Can't get into any details, of course. Difficulty level is about what it ought to be; it's passable if you know the material, but you're not going to breeze through it if you don't have a fair amount of hands-on and/or serious study time. Check the blueprint and make sure you know everything on that list.

Re: CCIE WIRELESS

Exactly. I felt it was about what it should be. I have worked on LWAPP and Cisco wireless since the Airespace days and several of the questions required careful thought. If you have several years hands on experience you should have no problem. The lab on the other hand is going to be a bear I think.

Re: CCIE WIRELESS

Do you have any updates on Wireless CCIE written? Have you attempted, please let me know as I am interested also.

Re: CCIE WIRELESS

I passed the written

The Cisco Press CCNA book helped

also

The CWNA Sybex book was good

There are questions on autonomous APs I know nothing about - look up SWAN

Not many RF calculations

Download Cisco Spectrum expert and study the demo captures.

I believe the CWNA CWSP and CWNE tracks are harder. I have not passed these but they cover a lot more RF theory.

Cheers mate and Good Luck

Re: CCIE WIRELESS

Thanks and I'll let you know how it goes. I'm not hoping to pass on the first attempt. I've been studying the following:

- autonomous AP (hands-on + config guide + command reference guide + technotes)

- wlc (hands-on + config guide + technotes)

- wcs (hands-on + config guide)

- location appliance (no hardware)

- netpro

- ACDU + CSSC + Spectrum Expert (hands-on)

- ACS + IAS + AD + CA (hands-on)

Re: CCIE WIRELESS

All cool

If you need any help with any configs or testing mail me at thags.govender@choicetech.co.za

It will be great to get study Groups going

Re: CCIE WIRELESS

I'm doing the lab in SJ tomorrow 5/12. I have done as much hands on as I can do so I'm just reading the config/deployment guides over today. My expectations are not that high right now just because the blueprints are so broad. If it doesn't go well at least I will have a better idea on what I need to focus on. I just hope I don't get a ZERO ;) I haven't heard of anyone else that has tried the lab....

Re: CCIE WIRELESS

That's because none of us wanted to be the first christian thrown to the lions. They are pretty hungry ya know!! Good luck man and keep us up to date.

Re: CCIE WIRELESS

Thanks for posting and good luck tomorrow! If you don't mind, shoot me an email on Wednesday (r@emasterlink.com), let me know how you did. I'm curious if you have to do anything with Microsoft LDAP/AD/IAS/CA or if it's all preconfigured for you.

Re: CCIE WIRELESS

I hope there isn't anything to configure on the Microsoft side. I've done it before but it can be time consuming. According to the lab software list I don't see anything Microsoft listed.

Re: CCIE WIRELESS

Oh, by the way.. I won't be able to answer that as I don't want to violate the NDA. Sorry.

Re: CCIE WIRELESS

So how did it go rrodichev??

I dare say he is out drinking somewhere. LOL Drinking to calm the misery or as I hope, drinking in celebration. Either way, give hime a day or two more for it all to sink in. Any other brave souls take it yet?

Re: CCIE WIRELESS

I agree with that. This lab will make you drink one way or the other ;) I'm just getting over my lab from Tuesday. It was pretty bad. The material itself followed the blueprint and I didn't feel there was anything that bad on it but the equipment did not behave. I have done hundreds of deployments and I have not seen the hardware act like this. Needless to say I didn't pass as the troubleshooting really ate up most of the afternoon.

Re: CCIE WIRELESS

I also didn't pass, and just like you said, I ran into a couple of silly issues that just took up too much time to troubleshoot. I finished the whole lab right on the clock, but you really need those 1-2 hours at the end to verify everything and to reread every single word in the book. Oh well, I'm going back in August hopefully. I know my weak spots now and just need to brush up on those.

Re: CCIE WIRELESS

Well you did better than I did because the troubleshooting prevented me from completing two sections.

Re: CCIE WIRELESS

passed yesterday on 2nd attempt, it's a great test!!!

Re: CCIE WIRELESS

Great job! Does that make you number 4? Did you run into any crazy issues?

Re: CCIE WIRELESS

Hey, I have been reading this thread with much interest. anyone interested in setting up a CCIE wireless study group?

I have been to the IUWMS beta class for the ccnp wireless it was great. the instructor was incredibly smart.

Community Member

Re: CCIE WIRELESS

I agree 100% mate ,that a study group is the way to go, I know Sujuit and Flavian personally who set these labs ,and they made sure its not going to be easy ,thereby killing the perception that Wireless is easy.

If there is anything above board we need to chat aboard lets just MSN or Skype each other.

This is going to be challenging for sure.

Re: CCIE WIRELESS

Possibly we could setup a web blog or something. the main goal is that we communicate and support one another, i was thinking about taking a task and making a web video about it and putting it on a web blog, for example this is how you install WCS, or this is how you put an AP in sniffer mode with wireshark.

there are so many talented people out there , but i have not found the gathering site for us to come together and get this done.i am open to ideas.
