Chapter 27. Troubleshooting Your Network > When Good Networks Go Bad

When Good Networks Go Bad

Today's networks are so easy to install and configure that you can just Plug and Pray, er, I mean Play. But when good networks go bad, it's another story, one with all the makings of a Fox Network special.

Every time I get a call from a client with a network problem, I cringe. I never know whether it's going to take 10 minutes or a week to fix. Sometimes the problem isn't so bad; I've fixed more than one "broken" computer by turning it on. If such an easy fix doesn't present itself immediately, though, a bit of a cold sweat breaks out on my forehead. The problem could be anything. How do you even start to find a nasty problem in the maze of cards, wires, drivers, and hidden, inexplicable system services?
