Publisher's Summary

Do you want to learn how to set up a new network? Do you want to learn more about network security? If you want to know more about computer networking, then pay attention.

Computer networking has been around for ages, starting from the wired to the present wireless systems. We have been able to do justice to everything you need to kick-start your knowledge of computer networking in this audiobook. Getting familiar with the components and implementing your own networks should come easier. Networking of computers requires so many infrastructures for a seamless operation. The various types of network structures require different parts. These will be looked at extensively in the course of this audiobook.

Physical network infrastructures are needed for a computer network that include but are not limited to switches, routers, wireless access points, etc. There is also some underlying firmware that makes these infrastructures function correctly. Other than the physical systems, there is also the needed software deployed to monitor, manage, and secure the network.

For advanced networks, there is a need for standard protocols, which are designed to perform numerous discrete functions. These protocols are also used to communicate different data types, irrespective of the underlying hardware. 

For instance, in the telephone system, a voice over IP (VoIP) can bring about the transportation of IP telephony traffic from one point to another once these points support the protocol. This is also similar to what occurs in the browser, with the HTTP providing portals to accessing web pages. Also, over an IP-based network, the IP protocols to transport data and services, since there is protocol compatibility.

This guide will focus on the following:

  • Types of computer networking
  • Components of a network
  • Mobile networks
  • Wired network technology
  • How to automate the network?
  • Introduction to IP addressing
  • Packets, frames, and headers
  • What is the airport extreme?
  • Information technology vulnerability
  • Sniffing and spoofing
  • About CCNA routing and switching
  • And more

Even if you've never known anything about computer networks in your life, you can learn it just in few days.

Author does a great job explaining the topics on a level that anyone can follow. I was glad he included the WPA2 crack information which must have just come out as the book was being published.

It's a fantastic working guide.

This book doesn't come close to getting you certified as a network engineer, but it is a perfect introduction for people who don't know the basic building blocks and design concepts of networks. It's a fantastic working guide.

Useful for someone on my knowledge level

This “to the point” book was a useful restore of what was hidden somewhere in my head about computer networking. I did not need a lot of time to listen it, and I regard it as an intro to a deeper dive into the subject.

A dummy that now feels better about networking

This is a thick book and it took me quite some time to get through it all.What's nice is that I was able to skip sections that didn't pertain to me and not feel lost.Great background information to help me with work as well as a thing or two I could use around the house.

This publication has helped me tremendously, not having worked in the IT until recently even though I've been sitting on my certifications for well over a year.Just moved from a help desk/desktop support role to a networking infrastructure job and this has been very helpful in the transition. Highly recommend for any first time infrastructure analyst.

I improved my skill!

I started working as an assistant to a network installer, even not knowing how to cut a cable. A friend recommended this book, and it has helped me improve my networking skills, now I do router installations and cable assembly as an expert, and my boss is happy now.
