    Handy guide designed for the network novice

    I believe this is intended for the novice and should help them setup a network for a variety of devices. There are loads of screen shots that should make the process easier.

    Chapters 10, 11, and 12 are helpful because the average home user will need a heterogeneous network.

    Make sure you also read chapter 13 on network security.

    No need to read the entire book. Just pick and choose what you need and set it aside until you decide to further enhance your network.
