Summary: Broadband Internet Connections: A User's Guide to DSL and Cable


If you are considering or already have a broadband Internet connection for your home or small business, this complete, accessible handbook tells you all you need to know. It provides a readable overview of available broad-band technologies, focusing on DSL (Digital Subscriber Line) and cable, and shows how to access the latest, most innovative Internet applications, such as streaming audio and video, interactive games, videoconferencing, and high-speed downloads. You will also get a look at such up-and-coming technologies as fiber-optic, satellite, and wireless broadband.

This book explains basic broadband configuration, demonstrating in detail how to configure your system to get the most out of it. You will also find extensive information on running a broadband server and sharing a broadband connection among several networked computers. Because broadband systems are constantly connected to the Internet, security issues are even more pressing than they are with a regular dial-up modem. "Broadband Internet Connections" provides a pragmatic guide to Internet security by addressing such important topics as assessing risk and methods, and tools for reducing risk.

Specific topics covered include:

  • Comparing advantages and drawbacks of DSL and cable
  • Drivers, IP addresses, DHCP, and PPPoE for broadband
  • The specifics of Windows, MacOS, and Linux configuration
  • Using broadband connections for Internet telephony, games, videoconferencing, and more
  • Performance tuning and troubleshooting broadband connections
  • Obtaining a domain name
  • Broadband management of e-mail, Web servers, and game servers
  • Remote access with broadband: SSH, FTP, SMB/CIFS, NFS, Telnet, X servers, and VNC
  • NAT and conventional routers for networked computers
  • Establishing and maintaining Virtual Private Networks (VPNs)
  • Firewalls, accounts, passwords, and other security tools and methods
  • In addition to comprehensive and practical explanations, "Broadband Internet Connections" provides numerous tips, warnings, and notes to enhance your knowledge and skill and enable you to set up and utilize a successful broadband connection.
