I am reasonably technically knowledgeable. I know how to set up a router, a bridge, mess around with with IP addresses and so on. There were two computers one Windows 7, the other Windows XP, on which I was trying to set up file sharing. IP addresses on the network were fine, the computers could ping each other, and I could not get file sharing to work. It was one of those "there is something obvious you are not doing, it is staring you in the face, and you are not seeing it" situations. I searched through my Windows references, went online, and found nothing, spending hours and hours. Finally, it occurred to me to open this book, which I had sitting around and ignoring because it was "too simple." I turned to Chapter 10, "Sharing Between Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows 7 Computers." I went step-by-step. If it told me to right click on something, I right clicked. If it told me to blow my nose, I blew my nose. FINALLY, I came to the missing steps. Things worked! I think I love...
I've been working on computers for 44 years (since 1968) and this is the ONLY book on networking that has made any sense and been of any value to me. What a steal at any price!
great book---got me up and running in no time
