WIFUND - Implementing Cisco Wireless Network Fundamentals v1.0

This course helps prepare you for the associate-level CCNA Wireless certification, a prerequisite to CCNP Wireless certification.

You will learn how to design, install, configure, monitor, and conduct basic troubleshooting tasks of a Cisco Wireless LAN (WLAN) in SMB and enterprise installations.

Note: Please bring a laptop computer with an Ethernet port as well as an internal wireless NIC, 802.11a/b/g/n. Access to the remote labs requires a browser that supports Java and permissions to open RDP or encrypted RDP (RDP443) sessions. If your browser does not support Java, you will need administrator rights to the laptop to install software.
