This book does a very good job of explaining what DSL is and how it works. The chapters on how to share DSL and Network Configurations for both the Home and Office environments are gems and should be required reading for anyone with a DSL connection. Although most DSL users won't need to spend a lot of time troubleshooting their DSL service, this book does provide a general, easy to read, but technical discussion of how DSL works and thus how to troubleshoot a misbehaving DSL connect. I find this book a much more concise, accurate description of DSL than the 'Dummies' book and less technical and therefore easier to understand than the more expensive, and more technical DSL books that are written for network administrators in large companies.
