5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Coverage, but more on the security, please, 3 Jun 2002
By A Customer
This book was just what I was looking for, an in depth, technical workthrough of setting up a wireless network with off the shelf tools. Theres actually more than I was looking for; as it discusses the 802.11b protocol, and even includes specs for the SNMP MIB's, which while you can them get off the internet easily enough, means that its a one stop shop for the wireless network setup kit. Its the no nonsense, not assuming youre an idiot, or completely savvy with the subject style that OReily are famous for. While I think some of thier books have failed to live up to thier otherwise superb standard, this one does not, and Gast has done a good job. I would, having said that, have liked more on the security angle - HOW to secure the wireless network a little more. He mentions VPN's and IPSec, and goes into a lot of detail on WEP (including exactly why its insecure), but he doesnt give any concrete examples. Given that a lot of Oreilly's other books are on security, firewalls etc, thats understandable, but i felt it would have rounded off an otherwise impressively comprehensive guide.

5.0 out of 5 stars First Rate Guide, 10 July 2009

Sir Furboy (Aberystwyth, UK) - See all my reviews
This review is from: 802.11 Wireless Networks: The Definitive Guide (Paperback)
This is a first rate book from O'Reilly. Plenty of depth, to the point that there will be little need to buy any other book on the subject. Here you will learn all about the physical layer, the 802.11 protocol, and plenty of information on the alphabet soup that surrounds it.

The guide is readable and logically laid out. It will make a great reference work but can be read through as a single whole too.
