Although the stated goal of this book is to help you choose the best DSL (digital subscriber line) service, DSL for Dummies does a nifty job of going beyond the basics and explaining all the technological issues you must consider before you venture into the world of high-speed Internet access.
DSL is a high-speed Internet service that runs over existing telephone lines. Unfortunately, getting it installed in your home is often a trying experience. David Angell addresses the problems typically associated with installing DSL service and provides helpful hints regarding what you should look for in a service provider.
Angell also deftly explains the equipment involved in obtaining DSL access, particularly the DSL modem, and gives a solid overview of the different types of modem available and the installation issues involved. (Although he mentions that notebook users can use PC Card network interface cards (NICs) for connection with a modem, he doesn't point out that USB, because it doesn't require additional equipment, is the better option.) He also does a good job of explaining DSL issues specific to Windows NT and Windows 2000, as well as how to share DSL access in homes or offices that have more than one computer.
If you're considering upgrading your plodding dial-up connection to DSL, you'd do well to consult DSL for Dummies before taking the plunge. --John Frederick MooreFrom the Publisher:
