On the Job: Network Setup and Maintenance for Student Testing



First contract position since I graduated.



Overview of Project:
PC Technicians will work on site at locations to assist with the setup and testing of client provided Cellular- connected Wireless networks and laptops and assist end user.
a. Unbox and install wireless router/access points
b. Document any damage to container or product and fill out damage report
c. Run power cords to each device and tape down cords as needed
d. Turn on Laptop and launch browser to ensure online


The 'client provided Cellular-connected Wireless' network equipment in question were Cradlepoint routers, which I had never heard of before.

It uses cell service to have an internet connection, to connect 11 laptops for student testing.

I'm not sure the client name was ever said, but it was some group in charge of testing students for a state test. I set up the network in a YMCA that had been delegated to storage after the hurricane.

The equipment was easy to set up, though there was one router that needed more hardware components replaced and solved, as it never could pick up the actual cellular signal. There were plenty of other routers to work with.

Laptops were Windows 10 Netbooks that, with a bit of finangling, connected to the appropriate router. Credentials were given through clicking the specialty browser and the testing sites were set up.

Wireless Diagnostics on Mac OS; Packet Sniffing on a WLAN

There's a post sitting in my drafts about Wireshark and how to sniff packets out of the air that was going to be about sniffing for authentication packets for Wi-Fi hotspots that aren't broadcasting SSID (Which you shouldn't do apparently! It's still not safe). I was watching this video to find a little more information about how to properly use Monitoring mode on my Macbook to sniff for WLAN packets on the network. So when he said "Just open up Wireless Diagnostics and sniff your network (check your width and channel)." It was shocking to me.
