Newbie ... Information about Cisco Wireless


where can I learn more about Cisco Wireless? I have GNS3 and Cisco Pakettracer but

there is no simulation for wireless. Can someone tell me what I have to do to learn more

about Cisco Wireless.

Are there maybe some good books to learn from how to configure and troubleshot a

Cisco Wireless environment (LAN).


I hope someone here can help me.


Sorry for my bad english, because I am from germany.

Hi Hajo,

Welcome to the Cisco wireless forum..smiley

Do not worry about bad English as long as we got your message.

I would suggest you to find an Cisco AP (old model) & WLC (4402 or 2106 ) with a PoE Cisco switch from ebay for cheaper cost.  Then you can play with those & learn Cisco wireless.

Without a controller you can learn how to configure Cisco AP (standlone mode or Autonomous) & if you have more than 1 AP then you can  configure those as bridge, etc.

Read some of my blog posts (autonomous related) & gradually move onto controller based (or Unified Wireless). It will be a nice journey for you.


Cisco configuration guides, Technotes & Config examples would be a definite assets for you. Try to use them as well.
