PRACTICAL, AUTHORITATIVE GUIDANCE ON KEEPING A WIRELESS NETWORK WORKING HARD FOR YOUR BUSINESS!


With annual equipment sales projected to grow to more than $5 billion by mid-decade, wireless networking is clearly a technology whose time has come. But with many wireless networks expected to be created at both small offices and home offices, where can people charged with maintaining them get comprehensive information to help them do just that? The answer is McGraw-Hill’s Installing, Troubleshooting, and Repairing Wireless Networks.


Written with insight by a noted IT expert and commentator, this book provides comprehensive coverage of this rapidly emerging technology, and in the process:



* Introduces all wireless components, both “off-the-shelf” and subscriber products

* Covers WiFi technologies as 802.11a and b

* Includes all scales of wireless networks, from home to office, cafes and campuses, airports and hotels, to MANs, and describes what’s best for different needs

* Shows how to integrate wired and wireless LANs

* Discusses the benefits and pitfalls of wireless technologies

* Advises how to set up and maintain security features

* And much, much more!


Basic enough for the hobbyist — and yet still detailed enough for the IT professional — Installing, Troubleshooting, and Repairing Wireless Networks is the essential survival guide for keeping a wireless network up and running.
