Network Maintenance and Troubleshooting Guide
Field-Tested Solutions for Everyday Problems, Second Edition
The 100% practical, real-world guide to anticipating, finding, and solving network problems--fast!
Real-life networks don't always behave "by the book." Troubleshooting them requires practical intuition that normally comes only with experience. In this book, Fluke Networks' Neal Allen brings together all that hard-won, hands-on insight: everything you need to discover what's really happening in your network, so you can anticipate and fix problems before users even notice them.
Writing for network technicians and administrators at all levels, Allen presents an approach to troubleshooting that has been proven in networks of all kinds, no matter how complex. He introduces indispensable triage and troubleshooting techniques for everything from copper and fiber cabling to IPv6, and presents unparalleled guidance on identifying and resolving problems at the MAC Layer. He illustrates his advice with diagrams, tables, and screen captures from Fluke Networks' market-leading instruments. Throughout this book, Allen also offers practical summaries of each of today's core networking technologies, making it an ideal complement to any network certification study guide.

1 . Great book
Posted March 31, 2010 by Larry Brown , Richmond, VAThis is a book for any network engineer. I appreciate the focus on the lower layers of the OSI model. I don't see that level of detail in any of the other tech-books I've read. I also appreciate that the book was not dry and boring - quite a challenge when you see the level of detail the author goes into. Minus a star as the print is so tiny - gotta show the love for the readers with failing eyes! :)
