3.0 out of 5 stars Help With The Basics..., November 28, 2006
This review is from: TechTV's Guide to Home Networking, Broadband and Wireless (Paperback)
This book is very good for people who do not understand computers. The book provides you with all the information and instruction that you will need to set up and configure your home network from the grown up. The book will help you set up many programs word for word. It will show you how to use dial up internet DSL internet, everything to make you a better computer user. The book uses the best technology in its time because this book was writing in 2002, therefore the technology and programs has become a lot better. I still recommend this book because it helps you with the basics. The book uses Microsoft's newest operating system, windows XP home edition. However, most of the information provided in the book can be applied to other Microsoft operating systems like Windows 98, 2000. So remember this title because someday you may need it to set up your computer, I would give this book a seven out of ten.
