Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Windows Vista Home Networking may be the simplest Windows networking book we've ever seen: simple enough for people who never thought they could build their own home networks without paying someone.

Joli Ballew explains everything -- everything -- in plain, no-Ph.D.-required English. How to pick the right network. What the hardware does. How it fits together. How to share what you want to share (and not share what you don't). How to use Vista security to keep the bad guys' paws off your PCs.

But that's not all. Ballew shows how to connect your Xbox 360 to your network (and even your Mac). You'll learn how to set up Windows Home Server to automatically store, manage, and protect your data. And if you own one of Vista's "business" editions, you'll learn how to access your network remotely (to find that presentation you forget to copy to your laptop!). Bill Camarda, from the December 2007 Read Only
