With wireless hot spots popping up everywhere from Starbucks to McDonalds to your truck to your home, wireless is the coolest thing going. Make it cooler with this new book. Adam Engst shows you, in 10 quick steps, the fastest, easiest way to connect to the Internet wirelessly, find Wi-Fi hotspots anywhere, protect yourself and your data from snoopers, increase the power of your wi-fi LAN, and more. Learn the fastest Wi-Fi nets and where to find them...the Wi-Fi hardware you should use (and why)...the 23 ways you can make your wireless connection more secure...and why Wi-Fi is the future and why you should hook up now.
I don't usually review books that I don't like, but this is an exception. I found this to be pretty much worthless for the purpose of helping me make a wi-fi connection, which is its stated goal. This sort of technical information doesn't work well in an audio format, because exact information doesn't stay where you can get it, but just flows on. Furthermore, I didn't find the recommendations of specific equipment very useful. Further-furthermore, I had some problems with my particular computer setup and found not one useful hint to help me resolve it.
