Any fool can plug in a wireless access point. But what if you want to secure your wireless network? Deploy wireless at your company, without overspending? Build a public access point? Improve performance or range? Centrally manage many access points? For that, you’ll want Jeff Duntemann’s assistance.
Duntemann’s wireless roots go all the way back to ham radio. He has a refreshingly old-fashioned willingness to get his hands dirty and discover what really works. And he’s written a remarkably thorough guidebook. It’s all here: Wi-Fi network design, hardware, testing, wireless on the road, WEP and WPA security, bridging networks, even wardriving (doing it and defending against it). Our favorite part: connecting with distant access points by building a tin can gain antenna. Bill Camarda
