Free wireless networking HOWTO book

Glenn Fleishman from Wireless Networking News sez, "My colleague Adam Engst and I are releasing our book The Wireless Networking Starter Kit as a free download. We wrote this edition in 2004, and sales weren't strong enough to promote further editions in print. However, we felt that it was still timely enough to give away. The book covers planning a Wi-Fi network, setting it up, security considerations, and adding antennas or more base stations to increase coverage and range. (What's not included? Much about WPA security and anything about 802.11n.) We haven't put it into Creative Commons because we share licensing with our publisher, but it's free for distribution." Link (Thanks, Glenn!)


  1. Glenn and Adam put out some very good electronic books. I have a few of them and they are well worth their usual price.

    This one should be good as a reference, especially for those not feeling all that sure about some parts of WiFi setups. Can’t beat the price. :o)

    Thanks guys!
