Take Control of Your Apple Wi-Fi Network

Make your Apple Wi-Fi network fast, reliable, and secure!

Although setting up a simple Wi-Fi network with Apple gear is no longer an especially geeky endeavor, making an existing network work optimally still takes effort, given the numerous possible options and places where problems can crop up.

Wi-Fi wizard Glenn Fleishman helps you create a fast, reliable, and secure Apple Wi-Fi network using 802.11ac or 802.11n AirPort Extreme, AirPort Express, and Time Capsule base stations. You'll find plenty of practical directions for working with Apple's AirPort Utility 6 configuration software (for Mac and iOS), including steps for setting up a base station, swapping in new gear, adding base stations to extend your network's range, attaching USB drives or shared printers, enabling security, creating a guest network, and more. (For help with older gear or AirPort Utility 5, the book includes a free download of any prior edition, dating back to 2004.)

You'll also learn about what's going on behind the GUI in AirPort Utility. If you better understand channels and bands, for instance, you may be able to reconfigure your network to dramatically improve performance. And, Glenn provides advice and directions for coping with tricky IP situations.

Yosemite/iOS 8?: This book was published shortly before 10.10 Yosemite and iOS 8.1 appeared, and Glenn says it is good-to-go for both of these operating systems. Glenn's blog entry below discusses the minor differences.
