While routers used to be only in large organizations, even relatively small offices are now apt to have a router, typically for connecting to the Internet or for a branch office. Cisco (although certainly not without competition) is probably the most common make you are apt to find, and this book ably covers basic configuration issues.
I really liked the attention to detail that this author gives. I have had some experience with Cisco routers, and am only too well aware of the potential for confusion. I was truly delighted that Albritton consistently pointed those areas out and regularly showed alternative ways to accomplish the same function. The examples used are realistic and useful, the exposition is clear, and he regularly gives background information or review where appropriate. In all, very well done.
