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.

Next, the book covers six ways to improve your network's coverage area and range, providing higher speeds at longer distances.
