1. WLAN Client Management

Configure a Microsoft Windows XP Wireless Zero Configuration (WZC) client utility. Enable security features that prevent attacks against workstations when users leave the enterprise environment.

2. WLAN Protocol Analyzers

Set up Wildpackets Omnipeek for advanced WLAN monitoring. Configure the Omnipeek interface for future protocol analysis exercises.

3. WLAN Channel Analyzers

Set up the AirMagnet WiFi Analyzer for basic WLAN monitoring. Name stations and APs in order to streamline future troubleshooting exercises.

4. Spectrum Analyzer Setup: WiSpy with Chanalyzer

Set up the WiSpy with Chanalyzer for spectrum analysis. Navigate through the software to prepare for detailed analysis in later lab exercises.

5. WLAN Configuration: WPA2 Enterprise

Configure basic connectivity and security settings on a Ruckus Wireless LAN Controller. Configure WiFi clients using the Broadcom Client Utility to connect to the access point using WPA2 Enterprise with EAP-TTLS (MS-CHAPv2) authentication and AES-CCMP encryption.

6. Wireless IDS Setup

Set up the AirMagnet Enterprise wireless IDS (WIDS). Examine WIDS alarm settings in order to prevent false-positives. Configure AP trust levels in order to differentiate authorized APs from rogue APs.

7. Connection Analysis

Verify Open, WPA2 Personal, and WPA2 Enterprise connections using WildPackets Omnipeek. Identify frames captured during authentication and analyze connection patterns. Examine the contents of 802.11n Beacon frames.

8. Performance Analysis

Test 802.11g and 802.11n throughput with varying channel configurations. Identify performance degradation when channel configurations are configured improperly. Perform individual throughput tests on each station as well as overall channel throughput tests using AirMagnet WiFi Analyzer.

9. VoWLAN Setup and Testing

Set up Ascom i75 VoFi handsets for Wi-Fi calling. Test voice quality with multiple active calls on a single WLAN channel. Examine channel error rates using WildPackets Omnipeek.

10. Roaming
