Where can I find spectrum analyzer examples so I can learn how to differentiate wireless signals?

I am trying to learn the differences on recognizing microwave frequencies, wireless cameras, Bluetooth devices and other devices to help me be more prepared for my CWNA certification exam.

Good luck .

The cwna book does a good job getting you ready for the exam , the cwap is cwna but on steroids since it goes into every detail of the 802.11 different processes
Thank you

Both Chanalyzer 3 and 4 can be opened up without the Wi-Spy USB dongle. The application allows you to open some example captures and also one of the tabs give you a range of screen shots of specific devices - if all you need is some examples this is your best option - I'm pretty sure you can download the software freely.

Do you have the CWAP book? , the book brings a CD with some spectrum analysis samples from different devices.

 

In this website you can get the samples from Chapter 11:

And this particular site they show some of the samples as well:

Thank you Fabian that is helpful I am willing to take all types of suggestions to guide me in the right direction which will help me pass my CWNA exam.  I will pick up the CWAP book to add to my collection.  I have also downloaded the CWAP CD from the CWNP website.

Thank you Matt for posting this good tip I will definitely have to check Chanalzyer out and the free examples.

 

Brian thanks for your motivation and recommendatons!  I appreciate all help and welcome any examples that anyone can direct me to so I can become familiar with recognizing all wireless device signals.
