Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This book is full of useful and helpful instructions for networking your computers. Although it is not comprehensive nor is it intended to b it is a valuable resource and great for visual learners For anyone looking to understand the basics of networking without getting caught up in highly technical manner.
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.
