This book explained a whole lot of things to me. I only work with computers on a basic level, like helping people set-up their e-mail accounts or teaching someone the basic computer house keeping like disk defrag. and other optimizing tools. I my self ran into a trouble trying to set-up a home network. My previous set-up worked fine until I replaced my cable modem with a more powerful one. Then things got a little hairy. The new set-up needs a lot more information than I ever knew existed. This book showed me how to find the information on my system and how to implement this information to set-up my network. This book is not equipment specific but it gives you the general knowledge needed to find the information you're looking for. For those of us new to this it also gives us a vocabulary to help us understand the terms used by the veterans. What if you don't have to ask, what do you mean by that?, every two minutes. The time to resolution would be reduced and you would have a better understanding of what the fix was. All in all this is an excellent book with a lot of information that will explain subjects from the very basics to the more advance.

It seems I fall into the second category.

This weighty tome was way too technical for me. Notwithstanding the fact that I consider myself to be of average intelligence, I was quickly swamped by what was to me overwhelming complexity. It may well be a very good book, but it's clearly written for a more elite and already initiated readership.

Definitely not for dummies like me.

I sent it back.

A good book for the novice networking student. Lots of real-world, practical info and examples. Author effectively injects humor occasionally to keep dry information interesting and improve the learning experience.

As a working software professional, I found this book very useful for networking concepts. The book held my attention on every page. I prefer to get the concepts on the subject rather than getting lost in rocket science code samples (although i am by no means newbie to coding :)). Definately would recommend this book if you want to know about fundamentals (not programming) aspects of networking and as well as learn about windows networking tools.

This book is ideal for anyone looking to learn the networking basics. I bought this book looking to learn a little more about a couple specific networking topics, but soon found myself perusing other topics because of Doug's great explanations. I did find a couple chapters a bit unnecessary and pointless but overall the chapters were very intriguing and informational. This book is definitely a must buy for networking 101 but not for an experienced networking guru.

I had been contemplating paying for a professional to set up my home office network but was frustrated in trying to find one that was affordable and appeared to know what he was doing. Out of frustration I tried this book and the result was a completely satisfying network outcome without outside assistance!

I picked this up after I purchased a Synology NAS system and despite how easy that was to set up I didn't understand enough about setting up networks with remote access. This was very helpful... I have a better handle on some of the terminology and now a good reference as I build up my networked system.

I got this book to supplement our other networking book for class. It explains things more in depth than the book we use in class. Our classmates often refer to it and he uses the examples in it to further explain things in his notes.
