    Mis-named, not helpful

    I was hoping for an overview of setting up a home network. The book title led me to believe that is what I was getting. Instead, the book provides a general introduction to home networking and poses a lot of questions to consider in setting up a home network. But, it does not provide any answers to the questions it poses. This is a good outline for a real book that could be titled All About Home Computer Networking. But, this book is not it. I found the user guide to my router more informative and helpful than this book.
