Google it.

Things are surely speeding up. This week we finally started putting wireless network together and testing it.

Three of us spent Wednesday evening by trying to figure why pfsense didn't work as it should. Some issues occured... Even installing pfsense was difficult! Luckily we had music. As my usual style - I was dancing around and trying to help the guys, light the room up with my smile. But when pfsense started to give screens like below, we decided it's time to go home.
Our setup on Wednesday evening.
Thursday was also fun. We had the same playlist, but way more people around. One of our teachers were leading the second year students with testing wireless access points. It was amazing to see how he encouraged them to look things up from internet, google things. It's surprising how many issues can be fixed just by googling the solution. You just need to know what to look for. And that is one of the things this school teaches us - how to find relevant information on our own.

IT field is changing fast and the things you learn in school are probably useless when you graduate. It's kinda sad, but there is also potential. School is not supposed to give you direct answers, it's teaching you how to survive later. It took me over 3 years to realized and accept that.
