Synopsis

This plain-English guide to popular wireless networking standards shows readers how to connect to wireless networks anywhere they go. After an introduction to networking in general and wireless networking in particular, the book explains all available standards, including all flavors of wireless Ethernet (Wi-Fi), along with new standards like WiMAX and 3G networks. Readers will learn how to use wireless software to connect to the Internet wherever they are, rather than waiting until they're in range of a public Wi-Fi hot spot. The Book of Wireless offers information about all of the currently available wireless services for Internet access, with advice about how to understand the important differences between them such as cost, speed, and coverage areas. For readers setting up home networks, the book contains practical advice about choosing and setting up hardware and software, securing networks using WEP and WPA, and setting up a wireless connection for VOIP.
