This is a good book to fine out just what a home network can do and how to do it.
I finally got my home network running with the help from this book and an article on-line. This book did lead me step by step on how to use Netmeeting so that I could work on the kid's computer while not leaving mine.
The author of this book spends a lot of time making things easy with all of the step-by-step instruction. So if you don't now or care about things like "cmd" or "ipconfig" you will really like this book.

This book was once very good but because it was written in 1999 and published in 2000 I would look elsewhere for home networking info. Many changes have taken place since this book was published -- wireless networking standards have changed, cabling requirements have changed, and operating systems have improved. My recommendation is SOHO NETWORKING, an excellent book published in 2003.

The Microsoft Guide is a comprehensive book that provides all the information you need to set up home networks based on the Windows 9x, ME and XP Operating Systems. I'm A+ / N+ Certified technician and also a PC Repair Instructor and with this book I was able to prepare a Networking fundamentals course with excellent response from the students. Half of my first class enrolled on the advanced course and are even talking about getting N+ certification. Thanks to this book I was able to create an enjoyable learning experience for the students.
By the way don't pay attention to the review that states lack of knowledge from the author. The reviewer is dumb enough to miss that Windows 98 and ME can't be servers because they are designed to be either workstations (clients) on a server/client enviroment, so they only access resources from the server, or work on a peer to peer enviroment so they can share resources with other PC and also access them from other PC. Also he is so ignorant to state that there's no such thing as Gigabit Ethernet. Maybe if he took the time to study the IEEE 802.3 cabling standard or even read any Network+ book he will crawl out of his ignorance.

Don't be fooled by the one negative review here..this is a great book for home networking. The typo (from Gigabit to Gigabyte) doesn't change the wonderdful content of this book and how EASY it makes it to create a home network. This book has won praise all over the place.

The author has made so many misqueues, there is no way that they were accidental. Gigabyte Ethernet? That's one heck of an Ethernet signal! I wish I had one of those. Win98 or ME can't be servers? Even in a workgroup? Bah! Don't waste your time here folks. Move along, there is nothing to see here.
