Format: Paperback
If you have a wi-fi enabled PDA or laptop buy this book. I found it well written and full of usefull tips for both bright eyed begineers, and the more savvy. Clear technical explanations for each 'hack' and most importantly how to adapt the 'hack' for the OS you have, whether it is OSX, Linux, XP, or Pocket PC. I particularly liked the sections on 'how to build your own wave guide' and 'How to test your home wireless network'. In short this book is a real gem and one I think I will keep on going back to. If you want to 'get your toes wet' with wifi or do something a bit different with your current setup, you could do far worse than by this book.

If like me you have a wirelss lan (or are thinking of setting one up), you will want to learn all the little tricks to make it just that more great.
The book introduces you to some of the coolest bits of software on the free market as well as some of the more less known ones.
It also shows you how to secure your wireless network, cool bluetooth tricks, monitor what your LAN users are viewing in real time!
AND LOTS MORE!

This book is an absolutely fantastic recipe book for those wanting to play with wireless comms (in particular, wireless computer networking). We have a remote farmhouse in Spain and the projects relating to stretching the coverage over greater distance are just what the doctor ordered.

4.0 out of 5 stars Packed with a lot of good information and basics that will never change. Just get old, but the foundation remains. 24 Nov. 2013
By Jay Thom - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This was a good book. Only you have to pretty well versed in Wifi technology to understand all of it. Having experience in wireless devices and how they operate is a necessity to understanding the information, not that I'm some wifi guru and that you will not learn anything, it just helps a great deal to know a little bit about network protocols and transmission on wireless channels. Maybe not the best book for total beginners.

2.0 out of 5 stars Okay for the beginner Wifi hacker 31 Oct. 2005
By James Thomas Moon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
There are some reasonable tips here about Wifi hacking. However, I know most of them already. The primary tips are the use of software for Wifi hacking. However, they do not go into great depth on all subjects.

There is some other background on other 802.11 protocol information. But I don't consider a background on 802.11 family of protocols a "tip". That's just information. What I want is gems of practical and applicable ideas/methods that you can only learn from long experience.
In that respect this is disappointing.
If you're serious about Wifi hacking get Wi-Foo. If you want a painless and low cost introduction then Wireless Hacks is appropriate.

2.0 out of 5 stars Old and dated but some good ideas 18 Feb. 2010
By AK - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book was initially published in 2003 and reprinted in 2005 according to the description in the front of the book. There is some good information but it is now in 2010 and more of a history lesson than a usable book on wireless networking. Most of the network "sniffers" and utilities are relatively old. There is a lot of Linux code from the early days before GUI's. The newest technology in the book is the the Linksys WRT54G router which came out as a "G" router many years ago. So, I'm sure it was good in 2003 but not a usable book for me, back to Amazon you go....
1.0 out of 5 stars Dated and pointless. 15 Nov. 2010
By J. Haney - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Security wise there is nothing here that isn't in your router's user guide or help file and all are well known requirements to secure a wireless network.

The building and extending portions of the book just pick low hanging fruit they document what you would find on the first page of well worded google searches.

Extremely disappointing, fortunately the price is very low. Too low to bother going through the return process.
