    Its interesting if you have a linksys router to play around.

    i dont know how you can say its easy. if you have any good links, please post em. i can set up a router no prob.... im getting confused remembering and keeping track of which authentication is used in what situation, how the handshakes and keys are exchanged for 802.11i, what the encryption is on each.... if you have a way of simplifying it, please tell me.

    pick up this book on Security +

    Amazon.com: CompTIA Security+: Get Certified Get Ahead: SY0-201 Study Guide (9781439236369): Darril Gibson: Books

    you can get the kindle version for under $10.00

    if you do not have a kindle you can download the free ap for your pc.

    This should fill in the gaps for you
    I don't claim to be an expert, but I sure would like to become one someday.

    I read the CWNA book and google it. Also, I used to crack WEP and WPA so studying Wireless brings back great memories. lol

    Separate Encryption and Authentication.

    Study one thing at a time, separating the two makes authentication seem nearly childs play.

    Encryption is the harder one.
