TechBookReport on 'Home Networking Simplified'
TBR writes "Installing and maintaining a home network is never a one-off task. Those two PCs strapped together with a bit of cable? They'll want to share a broadband connection. Or they'll want to be joined by a couple more machines in other parts of the house. And they great new printer? Hey, all the machines want to print to it. And where does wireless fit into all these wires… Home networks, just like grown up networks, tend to grow, mutate and become increasingly complex. If you're tech-savvy and can speak IP like a native, that's fine, if you're not and all you know about is what you see when you boot into Windows then you're in for a rough ride. Hence the need for books like 'Home Networking Simplified'."
