A Warning for the Technically Challenged

As you've seen throughout this book so far, computer hardware and software can be simple to understand and easy to use. So can network hardware and software. Nevertheless, all forms of data communications, at the network level, are rather technical by their very nature. So be forewarned that the rest of the material in this chapter is more technical than you've been used to so far. And although the rest of the networking chapters that follow depend on some of this chapter's material, this material is primarily aimed at readers who need to understand, manage, and set up a network that's larger than the typical two- or three-PC network in a household.

Without this in-depth discussion, this text could not possibly explain networks for the people who need to manage them in a nonpersonal setting and this applies to such networks that are rather simple. So if you just want to connect two PCs, consider skimming this chapter for some terms and moving to the next to gather more knowledge. If you need more information than that, you'll appreciate the level this chapter goes to.
