Correction: new ‘WFA Certified’ clients. There is no legal requirement for ALL new 802.11 clients to support WPA3 from 2020 as this headline infers.

I guess I missed the announcement that all existing WLAN's must use only WPA3 from summer 2020... anyone else?

I’m impressed you’ve kept the caps for your proxim’s all these years. I binned them the day I got them knowing they’d be left around various customer sites eventually anyway 😂

Does anyone else get nervous when start digging trenches in their street? Think I will pack a Go bag ready for heading out to Starbucks.

Got it working but not as expected. Had to put the ethers file in the root Wireshark directory (c:\users\testuser\appdata\roaming\wireshark). If I put it inside a profile (c:\users\testuser\appdata\roaming\wireshark\profiles\testprofile) then it did not pick it up :(

Awesome. Thx. I remember reading about the Ethers file a while back now you mention it, but I couldn’t get it to work. Will check your link and try again.

How do you substitute MAC addresses for arbitrary names instead? For L2 analysis. Do you just replace the IP in the hosts file with the MAC? TIA!

So you’re pointing out that the L2 frame is not “lost” even if the first/second/third attempts fail. I.E. a retry does not signify a lost frame, but more a delayed frame, as it possibly succeeded at a lower rate? Yes, L1 loss, but L2 delay. Sorry for the need of clarification.

I wanted to buy the app for a couple of bucks as it is well worth it, but not sure I want to pay a couple of bucks every year. I guess I’m a cheapskate but I only speedtest a couple of times a month and don’t really need history going back too far. Great app though.

*GREAT* multicast blog by with examples/captures. I’m glad he agreed that Multi-to-Uni conversion might not be a solution for low data, high client count solutions.

If your Brussels sprouts smell of farts then you’re cooking them wrong 😂

Makes excellent kindling for getting the log burner going when winter comes back around. But perhaps in Scotland you have to keep yours burning all year round 😝

Beyond Meat is great. We had it in Banff and now have it in the UK too. But even better is the Impossible burger, but that only seems available in the US right now. If you’re in the US Kelly get to a Cheesecake Factory and try it out. A.Mazing!

Did you try mixing it with anything like mayonnaise to see if it improved/mellowed?
