One of the interesting things about Apple’s AirPort networking hardware is that it often evolves in subtle ways that Apple doesn’t call out, making books like Glenn Fleishman’s Take Control of Your 802.11n AirPort Network all the more useful. Plus, since many of us add newer AirPort devices to networks that already rely on older AirPort hardware, our wireless networks are becoming all the more complex, even as setting up a very simple one becomes easier. That’s the theme of this MacVoices podcast discussion with host Chuck Joiner, so if you’re interested in learning about the new features Glenn explains in Take Control of Your 802.11n AirPort Network and the ways that Glenn and Take Control publisher Adam Engst revised their Take Control of Your Wi-Fi Security, listen to this podcast.
