Publisher Comments:

About the Book Topic 802.11b wireless networking, casually known as WiFi, connects PCs and shares Internet connections without cables. Users with WiFi-equipped laptops can roam from cube to conference room to coffee shop — or from home office to bathroom — without losing touch with the world. WiFi is being implemented in homes, offices, and many in-between areas, and is the only networking technology that spans PDAs, desktops, tablets, and laptops. Book Description This book consists of many short, focused topic features that answer all the typical questions newcomers ask, such as "how does this work? how do I do it?" without losing the reader or a sense of humor. Duntemann explains the complex security issues clearly, and shows how users can protect themselves from both obvious and non-obvious threats. He expands the blizzard of WiFi acronyms and touches on the human element in the WiFi movement, including hacker threats and WiFi weirdness. The unique FAQ-index feature allows readers to zero in on precisely what they need to know without plowing through unrelated text.
