I've recently acquired a Denon CEOL N-8 compact stereo. The main reason for my choice is its integrated WLAN and networking capabilities. There's one tiny spot of trouble, though: the WLAN turns out to be utter crap. [more inside]

I wish I could troubleshoot my home internet service and wireless network when they're acting funny. I'm computer-literate but I only have the vaguest sense of how networks do what they do, I don't mind reading technical stuff, and I'd like to end up with a useful set of intuitions about how the damn thing works. What should I read?

We have a wireless LAN with rogue detection. The rougue detection picks up some laptops as rogue access points. It looks like the laptops are looking for the last access point connection they had. We see standard SSIDs like "linksys" and "Free Public WiFi".
Why would the laptops be broadcasting the SSID of the previous access point it was connected to?

My brother and I would like to build a wireless network between our two homes to create a secure network, but we have no idea about radio antennas, signal strength, line-of-sight, etc. [more inside]
