But it was only when I received the book that I realised that 'Unwired' not only referred to WiFi, it also referred to Bluetooth, Infrared and other wireless technologies. This book considers them all in relation to Windows XP. I recommend this book to anyone who uses Windows XP and who has 'wireless' problems. It is not a particularly thick book and, best of all, it is easy to read. A familiarity with Windows XP is assumed.

Windows XP Unwired explains what is wireless network and how to use wireless network in Windows XP. Author explained very well from the very basics about network, what is a network, uses. After that he explains about what are the advantages, challenges about wireless network, how to secure a wireless network, how to setup your own wireless network at home. Once you complete this book, you will be able to setup your own network without any expert help.
First it explains the fundamentals of network, like what is a TCP/IP, how it works, then radio waves. Then it explains what is Wi-Fi network, 802.11 Wirless standards, how to use 802.11 wireless on the road, wireless hotspots, how to find wireless hotspots. How to use Infrared port on your Palm / Pocket PC, Bluetooth technology, GPS, and Cellular Networking.
The entire book is organized to explain you about What a specific Technology is (for example Blue Tooth), what are the current standards, how to use that technology, advantages and disadvantages (if any), limitations, and how XP supports that technology.
The best part about this book is, though it says Windows XP unwired, it explains about wireless adapters, NIC. It has case studies on how to setup Home Network.
Other topics conved in this book includes, XP default firewall, Virtual Private Network (VPN), Remote Desktop. It is like a complete reference for wirelss networking technology.
I strongly recommend this book to everyone who wants to understand wirless networking.
