Publisher's Summary

Do you want to find out how a computer network works? Do you want to understand what it all takes to keep a home or office network up and running? This audiobook is all you need! It will help you navigate your way to becoming proficient with network fundamentals and technology.

When the first computers were built during the Second World War, they were expensive and isolated. However, after about 20 years, as their prices gradually decreased, the first experiments began to connect computers together. At the time, sharing them over a long distance was an interesting idea.

Computers and the Internet have changed this world and our lifestyle forever. We just need to touch a small button and within a fraction of a second, we can make a call, send a file or video message. The major factor that lies behind this advanced technology is none other than computer network. That's why it's important to know how it works!

Networking for Beginners covers the following topics:

  • Networking Basics
  • Network Hardware
  • Network Cabling
  • Wireless Networking
  • IP Addressing
  • IP Subnetting 
  • Network Protocols
  • Internet Essentials 
  • Virtualization in cloud computing 
  • Network Troubleshooting

Networking for Beginners is an easy-to-listen audiobook for anyone hungry for computer networking knowledge. The language used is simple, and even the very technical terms that pop from time to time have been explained in a way that is easy to understand.

So, what are you waiting for? Buy a copy now!

Learning computer networking topics.

I would highly recommend this audiobook for learning computer networking topics. People who don't have any significant understanding of networking concepts really are. I listen to it and it was like a light was switched on.
