If you have practical questions about how to hook up multiple computers in your home, you might be interested in a new offering from McGraw-Hill/Osborne Media entitled
Home Networking Survival Guide. Penned by David Strom, the book provides readers with info on how to get their homes hooked up with a minimum of muss and fuss.
Strom’s book covers both Macintosh and Windows operating systems, and offers info on sharing broadband connections, setting up security, wiring the house and setting up a wireless network. The guide is written in plain language designed to be approachable for ordinary consumers, so you don’t need to be an expert in order to get the most out of it.
Strom said the guide is written for home users and folks who have home offices alike. “Having a home network can be very compelling with more families owning
multiple computers and wanting to share high-speed Internet access in addition
to the growing number of those working from home,” said Strom.
