One of the drawbacks of working in IT is that you get numerous requests from friends and neighbors asking for help setting up wireless networks (or fixing the ones they already have). I've wanted a book I could recommend that would give them everything they need, written at a level they could understand. I think I found it here... Wireless Home Networking Simplified by Jim Doherty and Neil Anderson.

The writing style is well-suited to a reasonably intelligent person who isn't brand new to computers. All the examples are using LinkSys products, but it's not that hard to make the appropriate adjustments if you're running something else, like D-Link.
