"'Out of the box' isn't a commonly heard phrase in the Linux community, but perhaps 'out of the book' should be! If you want your Linux wireless network with the minimum fuss, it's an essential read." Davey Winder - PC Plus, September; Linux Unwired covers a lot of ground in a short space and it manages to do it well, for the Linux WIFI enthusiast this book could become a constant reference.
