WiFi Pilot Post on CWNP.com

As you can see from the graphic on the left, I have a new blog post available on the CWNP homepage, http://www.cwnp.com 

If you are unfamiliar with the CWNP program, they are a vendor-neutral certification body for wireless networking and security.  

My most recent blog post at CWNP talks about a new product offering from CACE Technologies and MetaGeek, called “WiFi Pilot”.  The WiFi Pilot WLAN Analysis kit contains a WiSpy Spectrum Analyzer, an AirPcap wireless packet capture device, and the WiFi Pilot analysis software.  

Check out the review on CWNP for an extended discussion of product functionality, pricing, etc.  

One other thing that I mention in the post is the Sharkfest Conference for Wireshark Users and Developers.  The conference is being held Jun 15th – 18th.  I am attending the conference and *super* excited about it – feel free to email me at douglashaider <at> hotmail <com> if you are attending. I would love to meet up and chat!

MetaGeek to Offer Upgrade Program for Wi-Spy Devices

MetaGeek, makers of the Wi-Spy Spectrum Analyzer announced earlier this week a special upgrade program.  It allows existing customers to upgrade from Wi-Spy v1 to either a Wi-Spy 2.4X or the newer, dual-band Wi-Spy DBx.   To upgrade, customers pay only the price difference between the devices.

MetaGeek then sends out the new device and a pre-paid FedEx envelope to return your legacy device.  The program was designed this way to allow for no down time in your Layer1 WiFi analysis capability.  However, returns must be sent back to the company within seven days. 

The official announcement states that this is a trial offer, and that the program may not be permanent.  It is also limited to one upgrade per customer.   Additional details, pricing, and ordering information can be found on the company’s official upgrade page.  

The Wi-Spy is definitely one of my favorite troubleshooting and analysis tools, and I think this is a great program.  It actually reminds me of another favorite tool, the AirPcap Wireless Packet Capture Tool, which offers a similar upgrade program by its manufacturer, CACE Technologies.
