The Barnes & Noble Review
Scott Mueller’s Upgrading and Repairing Networks, Fifth Edition is remarkably comprehensive and amazingly useful. If you need to keep a network running -- or make it run better -- you’ll rely on it constantly.

It covers the entire network lifecycle, from planning upgrades and migrations through day-to-day maintenance. It covers everything from physical components to protocols, both wired and wireless. It covers both Windows and Unix/Linux, and environments ranging from the enterprise to the home office. It thoroughly addresses meat-and-potatoes issues like user/resource management, printing, storage, and security. And, of course, it offers an immense amount of troubleshooting help -- including full chapters on problem-solving strategies, testing and analysis tools, and IP network troubleshooting.

What’s new in this edition? Plenty: new wireless security standards and firewalls, 10GB Ethernet, 802.11g and its proprietary extensions, WinXP SP2, new Smartphone coverage, and a whole lot more. Bill Camarda, from the July 2006 Read Only
