Although the maze of wires was a mess, at least there was some comfort in their their reliability and the thought of going wireless was a bit daunting. I have used many Dummies books in the past and decided to rely on one for my planned network. Some regard the thoroughness some call it repetition of Dummies books as a drawback but for the less-than-totally-expert technician, they are well and truly invaluable. Most contain some odd bits of humor which some regard as corny, but the lighter notes provide some comfort when feeling overwhelmed by a task.
I was networking two new Intel Macs, a couple of printers and external drives, driven by an Apple Airport Extreme receiving signal from my internet provider's cable and my modem. Briere and Hurley guided me through the process, making sure that appropriate consideration was given to security through the use of names and passwords where advisable. The end result was a fully working network on the first try. Anybody driving by the house would need a large van full of decryption stuff to break into my network.
Accommodation for a guest user of the network was provided as well as procedures for introducing Windows computers to the network. Although my interest was obviously Apple-related, the book is an equal-opportunity tome and thorough attention is given to constructing wireless networks around Windows-based equipment. I'm preparing for my first foray into wireless networking yeah, I know, about time I got into the 21st century , and after online researching, was totally confused about where to start.
I didn't even know enough to know what questions to ask. This handy little book went a long way toward helping me figure it all out. It assumes a basic knowledge of computers in general, but goes on to explain in plain English what wireless networking is, what it can do, and how you can do it. There are also little sidebars of more technical background information if you're so inclined, but you can ignore these and still get what you need to know from the main body of information.
You will get good information on what equipment to buy and not buy , how to set it up, pitfalls you may encounter, and much is written about the all-important wireless security measures you must take. Whether you simply want to network one desktop and one laptop, or go all out and turn your home into the Starship Enterprise, this book will help you.

I don't need to know everything, but I need to know enough about what they suggest to make good decisions. This book is a good review for someone like me who has been out of school for years and needs to catch up on the latest options in networking. It is also a good primer before reading more specialized books.
If you want Windows networking info, then this book is probably fine. But if you're wanting to learn Unix, Linux, etc. The book sort of pretends to cover all flavors, but in actuality, very little info is here for anything other than Windows. Although there are chapters and specific cases citing Windows, nearly all the generic information is also about Windows ONLY. If you feel overwhelmed by the subject of networking and don't know where to start, this is not a bad place. The nine mini-books contained in this all-in-one do a pretty good job of introducing the various subtopics in this very broad field.
Some subjects are covered in more depth than others. Some of the troubleshooting tips I thought were pretty lame. I am not generally one to buy dummies books. I don't like the way they tend to waste my time with silly jokes.
