    Book Really Helps the Need To Know How!!

    Book really was easy to understand and helpful in explaining step bt step how to set up a home network. I have W-Xp DeskTop and W-Vista Laptop with Linksys Wireless Modem, and everything worked as explained.

    Good for the Introduction of the parts

    This book in best for the people who have no knowledge about the home networking and the requirments. But, there is lack of knowledge for file sharing, confusing internet sharing instructions, and PC configuration. Good for the new starters
