How recognized and pertinent are the CWNA and CWSP certifications to my career? Are there others that I should...
What I don't understand from your e-mail is what side of the wireless game you'd like to concentrate your efforts to master. Given your background, I'm guessing you come from an engineering background and might therefore be most interested in the more technical work involved in designing, installing, managing security for, or analyzing traffic and activity upon, rather than the more mundane work involved in maintaining and operating wireless networks. If that's true, the CWSP, CWAP, some of the Cisco specializations, and so forth, will probably be more up your alley than the CWNP (though you must earn a CWNP to obtain a CWSP, if memory serves).
