This book covers selection and installation of all components of a network: hardware(cards, routers, servers), cabling, and operating system software(Windows, Netware and Unix). There is an entire section devoted to wireless networking technologies(esp 802.11b and a) and the components used in a wireless network. Moulton demonstrates how to use a SOHO local area network to share high speed Internet access among all networked PCs or Hosts. This section includes coverage of how to install and configure a router. Other festures include major coverage of security: virus and worm programs, and regular and personal firewalls such as Black Ice Defender and Norton Personal Firewall. Also covered is VoIP telephony - this can help a small office save PBX costs by sending calls over the Internet. Given the number of professionals working full-time or part-time from home, a book was needed which described how to select and configure hardware and software components to support disk, printer and Internet connection sharing in both wired and wireless networks. That book is SoHo Networking.
