Price of Wireless IDS/IPS
I realize that it has been almost a week since I posted new content on WiFiJedi.com – don’t despair! Over the last week, I wrote two guest posts for other notable blogs.
Last Wednesday, I made another post to my Computerworld blog (“Cautiously Cutting the Cord”) entitled “RSA Inspired Thoughts on Wireless Security”. The post spoke about different Wireless Intrusion Detection System (WIDS) designs. I just started blogging for Computerworld last month and that is my third post – please visit those posts, Digg them (if you think they are worthy), and comment – I love the conversations generated by comments!
Last Thursday, I wrote a blog post on CWNP.com addressing pricing concerns of 802.11n networks. The article had sections outlining the costs and benefits of 802.11n networks. It even had a section titled “WWWBD? (What Would Warren Buffett Do?).
I was actually going to summarize these posts on WiFiJedi.com over the weekend, but I ran into a technical difficulty. I originally typed out this post using the WordPress application for my iPhone while on a flight from Phoenix to Seattle. Since I was on a flight, I had to save it in the “local drafts” folder of the iPhone app. However, when I went back to publish the post, the information wasn’t there! I Googled the issue, and found out that this was a known (and fairly common) issue with the iPhone application for WordPress. The recommended “fix” was to uninstall and reinstall the application. While this method didn’t allow me to recover the data I had already drafted, it did seem to remedy the issue. Just to be sure, I wrote a test post, saved it to the local drafts, and came back later and pushed it to the WordPress website.
