By hardware I presume you mean things like transmitters, tuners, power supplies etc.
To learn about repairing these things you need to take a course in electronics and study the basics first.
Then after you've mastered that, you need to learn about RF and how it is used and reacts at different frequencies.
This will take you a few years. Once you understand the theory then you will need test and service equipment to assist you in fault-finding.
This gear does not come cheap.
If you need somewhere to start, visit your local library and grab some books on electronics and start reading.

Good luck!

OK. Have a look on this page:

Wireless network


What do you see?
Many small units and parts. What's the most expensive
one? $200? $190?
Why would you even bother to fix those parts, when it's
completely waste of your time? 10-20 years ago hardware
technician were making good money, and they still
do, but not by "repairing hardware". Only by
replacement.

Moreover, most of the units those days are using nano
microprocessors technology, how you're going to fix it?
It's much more cost-effective to buy a new unit no
matter how you look at it :)

Good luck!
