It has been just over four months of very hard work, listening to users, adding features, implementing changes, and generally improving Whisher, but we’ve done it! A private beta program is set to start in a few days, and we are looking for users to participate in it. In general terms, we are looking for the following - you must:
- be knowledgeable in WiFi technologies and networking, we’re not asking for gurus, but we need people who know what an SSID is
- have at least one laptop computer with WiFi, be it a PC with Windows or a Mac. A desktop with a USB or PCI WiFi adapter is also good.
- have at least one WiFi access point or router, and be knowledgeable in its configuration and management.
- be willing to test a software application and report frequently and consistently using an online bug tracking platform (don’t worry, it’s dead easy to use!).
As part of the beta testing program, we will offer two prizes, one for the most active tester, and another randomly drawn amongst all participants. The prize for each winner consists of a Linksys WRT300N Wireless-N router and a matching WUSB300N Wireless-N USB adapter, so that you can enjoy up to 12 times more transfer speed than normal 802.11G technology, and up to 4 times more range!
If you feel like you can make a difference, please contact the beta team at email@example.com today! We will give you more details about how the program will play out, and get you started. Beta testers will also have access to a private area of the Whisher Forums to exchange experiences, make comments and participate in the beta program. Please include a brief description of your experience and equipment so that we may better evaluate your application.
