Wi-Fi networking is supposed to be simple. So why do so many people tear their hair out when trying to configure their wireless networks?It's all about the details. In this book, Wi-Fi experts Glenn Fleishman and Adam Engst put AirPort through its paces, teaching you in step-by-step, illustrated examples about how to remove the frustration in your configuration. The book covers the range of your AirPort and Wi-Fi needs, starting with how to pick the appropriate base station and adapter card--Apple is often best, but it's worth considering alternatives. It tells you how to determine the best place for your Wi-Fi equipment, and then how to configure your base station and computer for precisely your needs. A long section explains setting up your own dynamic addressing, a common need for home networks with a mix of computers and needs. Next, the book covers six ways to improve your network's coverage area and range, providing higher speeds at longer distances. Finally, you find out about securing your network: both keeping intruders out and securing the data that passes over the network. Four appendices cover related issues, including AirPort Express configuration, setting up a software base station, using AirPort Management Utilities, and finding the right Wi-Fi adapter for an older Mac or PC.
