Information security experts Khan and Kwaja combined their WiFi knowledge and created this step-by-step guide covering all the major aspects of 802.11 networks. They cover the whole circle, from initial network and product considerations, over installation and security, to troubleshooting the existing network.

    "Bulding Secure Wireless Networks with 802.11" is easy to read, informative and deals with a number of WiFi security facts. The difference between this and other WiFi security publications is that the book is intended to be an implementers guide into building a secure wireless Local Area Network. I should note that the book is strictly Windows related, so, besides the Orinoco guide, don't expect any implementation methods for other operating systems.

    From the implementer's perspective, the book should be suitable to novice and inter mediate readers, because the topics surrounding actual implementations and advanced techniques are covered in a less technical way. Don't get me wrong, there are technicalities inside the book, but not so deep enough to be of interest to advanced users familiar with WLANs. Yet another fact that proves that the book is more novice user suited is that software installations are started with "Insert CD", click "setup.exe" etc.
