Format: Paperback
I bought this one mainly because all of my Windows books lacked the kind of plain language instructions I needed to help get my home network up and running. This one covers everything from installing ethernet cards to file sharing, network printing, mapping drives, network security, and just about anything else you can think of. It's only 335 pages, including the glossary and index, but it feels like a 1,000 pages worth of valuable information. I still refer to this indispensable guide whenever some unexpected event arises. And that's one of the great things about these Dummies books. You don't necessarily have to read them from cover to cover, instead you can use the table of contents, or the index, to zero in on those areas where you need the most help. Home Networking for Dummies is well-organized and written in a language that is not intimidating for those of us who are not IT professionals, but would like the same level of results.

Thanks to author Kathy Ivens for making setting up our home networks so easy! Actually, we used it for setting up a small business network too, so it served multiple purposes. I knew I might need some help getting the networks set up, but I was most concerned about security. I really have no worries now. This book explained how to ensure security...and why!

Ok, I admit I'm a dummy when it comes to wireless networking. This book, overall was not very informative. Many times the step by step instructions provided were difficult to follow and didn't match up well with what was shown on my PC screen. There is a ton of "fluff" in this book, I wish they would just cut to the chase and provide clearer step-by-step instructions. This book really did not help me much.
