So many things have happened since 2002 - this book needs an update. The many references to hubs made me feel like I was reading about buggy whips. The book spends alot of time 'probably too much' on basic networking, and anyone whose has basic networking nowledge could skip the first couple of hundred pages.Was this review helpful?
