4.0 out of 5 stars Book has good detail Feb. 1 2013
By Nelson
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The step by step guide has a lot of good detail, and photos on setting up a network for windows 7. Some of the advance sections require reading a few times over.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cohesive and focused, even with five authors Jan. 30 2011
By deoren - Published on
(Full disclosure: This book was provided for review at no cost to me)

Note: This book is geared towards a reader who is familiar with software installation and configuration. It also assumes you have a network card installed. This is mentioned in the introduction along with other requirements.

Expecting the book would be too basic for a SysAdmin, I still learned some new things. It was surprising that a book with five authors stayed both cohesive and focused.

Good Points:

* Instructions are detailed and accompanied by screen shots. Some steps are duplicated, but this helps each section stand on its own and references to relevant chapters are given.
* Both routers covered (in detail) are realistic choices based on popularity/price.
* WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy) is discouraged and readers are encouraged to use WPA2-PSK to secure their wireless network.
* The authors went beyond just networking your systems and also covered built-in security tools such as Microsoft Update, Windows Defender and Windows Firewall.
* Operating systems other than the book's focus (Windows 7) are covered including Windows Vista, Windows XP, Mac OS X 10.6, and even Ubuntu GNU/Linux 10.10.

One thing I might change would be the 35 pages spent in chapter 9 prepping Windows Media Player 12 for content streaming. However, it could be argued that this was necessary in order to give a more realistic starting point.

All in all, I would recommend this book to those looking to incorporate Windows 7 into their home network.

4.0 out of 5 stars Handy guide for the netork novice. July 12 2011
By Charles Alford - Published on
I believe this is intended for the novice and should help them setup a network for a variety of devices. There are loads of screen shots that should make the process easier. Chapters 10, 11, and 12 are helpful because the average home user will need a heterogeneous network. Make sure you also read chapter 13 on network security. No need to read the entire book. Just pick and choose what you need and set it aside until you decide to further enhance your network.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not really for novices or the faint of heart July 18 2011
By Thomas K. Eckle - Published on
This book is well written and documented, serving well as compendium of useful networking concepts and instructions, clearly illustrated and explained Similar to most technical books, I cannot imagine someone reading the book cover to cover, however skipping around among topics of need or interest appears to be the most valid way to use this book. Furtherrmore, I suspect the average computer user is challenged by the concepts of networking, though those willing to spend some time and effort could increase their competency and make themselves more proficient at networking their personal computing environment using the material contained in this book. In summary this book challenges the novice, may enlighten the proficient, and may even have some gems for the expert. I recommend this book to those who are looking to take the next step in the world of networking and have the will to learn.

5.0 out of 5 stars Now it is easy to fix kinfolk's (computer) issues! May 2 2011
By Rhonda O. Heath - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
Can I tell you how much I LOVE this book? The instructions in Network Your Computers & Devices Step by Step by Ciprian Adrian Rusen are so clear and easy to follow, now:

1. Even my parents can network their devices (because I bought them a copy of this book)!
2. I can keep my kids off the computer(s!) between certain hours (mmmuhh--hhwaahhh--hhhhaaa...)!
3. My sister can figure out what is wrong with her wireless router (really--because I bought her a copy, too)!
4. I don't have to travel to troubleshoot (oh, how I love to sleep in...)!

If you are looking for a way out of fixing your kinfolk's Windows 7 networking issues, too, then this is the book for you--and them!
