Overview

"Last year, some 70 million wirelessly enabled computers, printers, fax machines, PDAs, and related devices were sold in the U.S. Now, with the right guidance, home and office users can configure these diverse devices into efficent information networks. Wireless Networking Made Easy gives readers an overview of personal, local, and wide area networks, helping them determine which one is right for them, and taking them step-by-step on how to set it up themselves, whether for their home or business.

Written in a nontechnical style and featuring several case histories, the book shows how to set up, manage, and administer a wireless network. In addition to giving readers a clear guide to getting started, the book goes on to cover more advanced areas, including performance-monitoring methods, common problems and solutions, and knowing when to upgrade. The book includes an appendix of wireless network online resources, as well as a special section on wireless broadband access. It is the simple key for anyone seeking to understand the wireless world — and make themselves a part of it."
