5.0 out of 5 stars Going Wi-Fi 30 May 2004
By Old Programmer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
It was with a little trepidation that I decided it was time to go Wi-Fi. Being a Harold Davis fan for some time, I picked up a copy of his book. Good decision! To start with he helped me decide whether to get a wirelss card for my old faithful laptop, or to get a new one. I went for a new machine (SONY VAIO TR3A). Setting it up was easy. With his book's step-by-step instructions, it was almost as though I had the author at my side. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars This book makes it easy! 17 May 2004
By Gina Smiley - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I have a new three level house and wanted to connect all the family computers onto one network. Drilling holes in the floors and running wires all over the place is definitely not my thing, so I started to look around for another solution. After learing about wireless networking (wi-fi), I can't imagine why anyone would use anything else.
This wi-fi book answered all my questions. Even though I was nervous about opening up a computer and putting a wi-fi card in, this book took me through it with steps and pictures. I've looked at the other wi-fi books at the bookstore, but this one definitely stuck out. Lots of good pictures and directions.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent beginner's guide! 3 Jun 2004
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I read this book knowing little about wireless networking, but over the course of the book I learned not only about how to set up my PC and my home for Wi-Fi, but also something about the technical details of Wi-Fi and where it will be going in the future. Although I knew enough to know that I wanted Wi-Fi in my home, reading this book definitely helped me choose the right products and learn to make the most of them. Thanks Harold -- without this book I'd still be working within a twelve-foot radius of my cable modem!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best wireless book for beginner! 6 May 2004
By Pradeep Giat, PhD - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
If you want to find hotspots, connect to hotspots, or set up your own wireless network, all using Wi-Fi technology, this is the best book for you. Everything in this book is very simple, but you find information here you will not find elsewhere. So this book is useful and also lots of fun. I highly suggest.

3.0 out of 5 stars Remember the date! 9 Jan 2010
By J. Knapp - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is OK, if you are living in 2004, when it was written. As you well know, times change, and they change really quickly in our day and age. If you buy a book from this vendor, you will find that you get quick service, and a good product. Just make sure YOU do your home work like I DIDN'T, and you won't be disappointed with the poor choice YOU made.
