Apr 30, 2001, 01:00 ET from WildPackets, Inc.

    WALNUT CREEK, Calif., April 30 /PRNewswire/ -- WildPackets Inc.,
 developers of AiroPeek, the industry's first comprehensive, affordable
 802.11b packet analyzer, today announced a new series of web-based seminars
 focusing on wireless LAN analysis in the 802.11b environment.
     Seminar topics include the state of the wireless market, 802.11 wireless
 analysis and technical issues, installing and configuring a wireless LAN,
 security concerns in WLAN deployment, and AiroPeek and complementary tools
 from WildPackets.  AiroPeek e-Seminars are currently scheduled for Tuesdays
 and Thursdays from 11:00-12:00 PDT.  Participants may register for the
 e-Seminars at:  www.wildpackets.com/corporate/events.
     In addition to the seminar series, WildPackets Academy offers two wireless
 network analysis courses designed to reduce the amount of trial and error time
 a network manager might spend fine-tuning their wireless LAN.  The two-day
 WP-101W "Orientation to 802.11 Wireless Network Analysis with AiroPeek"
 features field-proven wireless network analysis practices using AiroPeek,
 including hands-on exercises.  WP-106 is a three-day course covering details
 of the emerging 802.11 wireless protocol environment, advanced features in
 AiroPeek, antenna placement, and performing an RF site survey to discover
 interference sources.  Site surveys are critical for adjusting a wireless LAN
 for interference, whether the source is structural, a competing device using
 the 2.4GHz band (such as Bluetooth), or unforeseen issues, such as moisture in
 books absorbing the radio signal.  The class schedule, full course catalog,
 and registration forms are available from www.wildpacketsacademy.com.
 
     AiroPeek and New Wireless Bundles
     WildPackets offers several cost-effective wireless bundles that include
 AiroPeek, NetSense with 802.11 WLAN support -- an expert packet trace
 analyzer, iNetTools IP test utility suite, wireless NICs, training and
 extended product maintenance.  AiroPeek v.1.1, currently in development, will
 include support for a broad range of wireless adapters, channel surfing, and
 more.  The new version will ship June 30, 2001.  Product maintenance holders
 will receive this upgrade for free.
