Publisher Comments:

Written by networking veteran with 20 years of experience, Network Warrior provides a thorough and practical introduction to the entire network infrastructure, from cabling to the routers. What you need to learn to pass a Cisco certification exam such as CCNA and what you need to know to survive in the real world are two very different things. The strategies that this book offers weren 't on the exam, but they 're exactly what you need to do your job well.

Network Warrior takes you step by step through the world of hubs, switches, firewalls, and more, including ways to troubleshoot a congested network, and when to upgrade and why. Along the way, you 'll gain an historical perspective of various networking features, such as the way Ethernet evolved. Based on the author 's own experience as well as those he worked for and with, Network Warrior is a Cisco-centric book, focused primarily on the TCP/IP protocol and Ethernet networks — the realm that Cisco Systems now dominates. The book covers:

The type of networks now in use, from LANs, WANs and MANs to CANs



  • The OSI Model and the layers involved in sending data
  • Hubs, repeaters, switches, and trunks in practice
  • Auto negotiation and why it 's a common problem in network slowdowns
  • Route maps, routing protocols, and switching algorithms in Cisco routers
  • The resilient Ethernet — how to make things truly redundant
  • Cisco 6500 multi-layer switches and the Catalyst 3750 switch
  • Telecom nomenclature — why it 's different from the data world
  • T1 and DS3
  • Firewall theory, designing access lists, authentication in Cisco devices
  • Server load balancing technology
  • Content switch module in action
  • Designing QOS and what QOS does not do
  • IP design and subnetting made easy


The book also explains how to sell your ideas to management, how networks become a mess as a company grows, and why change control is your friend. Network Warrior will help network administrators and engineers win the complex battles they face every day.

Book News Annotation:

Donahue, a computer consultant and head of GAD Technologies in New Jersey, has designed this manual to cover the same information on Cisco networks as in the CCNA certification exam, but with greater depth and more real-world applications. The authors shows programmers, administrators and network architects how to troubleshoot a Cisco network, including routers, switches and firewalls, and offers tips on how to avoid congestion within this type of network. Case studies are used to illustrate common problems in LAN, WAN, MAN and CAN networks, and plenty of diagrams are employed to provide logical strategies to solving obstacles.

The strategies and examples outlined in this book provide the tools you need to do your job well.

Revised and updated for the latest Cisco technology — including the Nexus 7000 series — this second edition takes you step by step through the world of routers, switches, firewalls, and more, including ways to troubleshoot a congested network, and when to upgrade and why.

Topics include:

  • Types of networks in use, from LANs, WANs and MANs to CANs
  • Switches, routers, firewalls, and many other devices
  • Auto negotiation and why its a common cause of network slowdowns
  • Telecom nomenclature and why its different from the data world
  • T1 and DS3 explained for the networking professional
  • Firewall theory, design, and configuration
  • How to design route maps and access lists in Cisco devices
  • Server load balancing technology
  • How QoS really works (and what it cannot do)
  • How to plan and deploy a network
