I have a couple of ideas for a new series I’ll be kicking off soon and hope people find them interesting. I’m going to do a bit of writing about setting up home networks and getting the most out of the GNU/Linux command line.
The basics of computer networking are very easy and a home network almost always employs nothing more than the most basic parts of a computer network. I’ll be breaking down these parts as well as what to look for in a broadband connection, simple things you can do to help protect your network, when to go wired over wireless and more.
On the Linux side I’ll be covering the basics of what the command line is, why you would want to use it, how to use it and tidbits on why I prefer to never actually sit at my Linux system.
