Publisher's Summary

Do you know the fundamentals of computer networking? Do you want to know how to keep your network safe? This easy-to-use guide is all you need!

In large companies, computers in the workplace need to be connected to a single unit to get work done. Whether it's a company or some other shared hub, computers need to be able to share resources to accomplish goals.

Building these networks requires skill, so understanding computer networks is key for getting these connections built. Network addresses must be set and approved. Network connections need to be sure. 

Building these types of networks requires a lot of thought, but with the right knowledge, you can provide your geographic area and beyond with safe, reliable networked devices. Whether it's the local area network for your company or the wired network in your home, you'll need some knowledge to get it started.

Computer Networking Beginners Guide will help you to get this knowledge through the following topics in a simple, easy-to-follow teaching approach:

  • Introduction to Computer Networking - Needs of a real beginner in computer networking: Components and classifications of computer networks, network architecture, physical topology, etc.
  • The Basics of Network Design - How to configure a LAN, network features, and various responsibilities of network users.
  • Wireless Communication Systems - How a computer network can be optimized, how to enjoy the benefits of Wi-Fi technology, how to set up and configure a computer for wireless connectivity, plus an introduction to CISCO Certification Guide.
  • Network Security - The most common computer network threats and fundamental guidelines on how to steer clear of such menaces.

Not what I’m looking for

The information in this book is ok, but the person reading it has no experience with the topic. Words are mispronounced to an extent that I doubt anyone else listened to the audio before putting it up for sale on your store.

ok read

The pronunciation of a hand full of words made it a little hard to follow at times. Other than that this was a great read.

Outdated and False Reviews

First off, I'm positive that they paid for all those high reviews, it's clear none of the reviewers actually listened to this book. The book is full of out of date info e.g. mentions floppy disks as example of storage, talks about windows vista but no mention of windows 8/10 and the narrator is not familiar with tech and often can't pronounce common words in the industry.

Learn things you didn't know

I thought I knew about computer networking, but this book has shown me so much I didn't know. Tons of information for beginners or just a refresher for others. This was very helpful in getting my network set upright.

This book is great!

It sets expectations of basic IT literacy and then takes you through all of the concepts from the ground up bit by bit. A few chapters in and you won’t be a pro but you will understand what’s what!

Listen, not searching

Yes, I’m sure it’s all available via web search but what I like about these guided introductions is that the writers know what you need to understand and in what order. Web searching is a minefield in these topics!

I found it

I wanted an easier audiobook to read to understand the production and allocation of IP addresses as well as understanding Network problems. Fortunately, I found it!
