Written for even the most network-shy novice, it begins with the most basic of basics-“A network is nothing more than two or more computers connected by a cable (or wireless adapter) so that they can share information”-and progresses through all the essentials, from cables, routers and hubs to building a wireless network. In clear, simple language, peppered with enough wry quips and jabs at the cult of IT to make it fun, Doug Lowe walks you through:

· How to build a wired or wireless network
