Thoroughly updated to reflect the latest version of CompTIA's Network+ exam, Networking Essentials, 3/e,is a practical, up-to-date, and hands-on guide to the basics of networking. Written from the viewpoint of a working network administrator, it requires absolutely no experience with either network concepts or day-to-day network management. This new edition splits the previous edition into two volumes. This first volume has been revised and reorganized around the needs of introductory networking students, and assumes no previous knowledge. Sections on cabling have been expanded, IPv6 is introduced, and new chapters on basic switch configuration and troubleshooting have been added. In addition, this volume's wireless and security chapters now focus strictly on introductory material. Clear goals are outlined for each chapter, and every concept is introduced in easy to understand language that explains how and why networking technologies are used. Each chapter is packed with real-world examples and practical exercises that reinforce all concepts, and guide readers through using those concepts to configure, analyze, and troubleshoot networks. Students can practice online with hands-on router and switch configuration exercises, using the accompanying NetChallenge software.
