"Computer Networks and Internets" is appropriate for all introductory-to-intermediate courses in computer networking, the Internet, or Internet applications; readers need no background in networking, operating systems, or advanced mathematics.

Leading networking authority Douglas Comer presents a wide-ranging, self-contained tour of the concepts, principles, and technologies that enable today's Internet to support applications ranging from web browsing to telephony and multimedia. This Fifth Edition has been thoroughly reorganized, revised, and updated: it includes extensive new coverage of topics ranging from wireless protocols to network performance, while reducing or eliminating coverage of older protocols and technologies. Comer begins by illuminating the applications and facilities offered by today's Internet. Next, he systematically introduces the underlying network technologies and protocols that make them possible: low-level data communications; packet switching, LAN, and WAN technologies; and Internet protocols such as TCP, IP, UDP, and IPv6. With these concepts and technologies established, he introduces several of the most important contemporary issues faced by network implementers and managers, including quality of service, Internet telephony, multimedia, network security, and network management. Comer has carefully designed this book to support both top-down and bottom-up teaching approaches. Students need no background in operating systems, and no sophisticated math: Comer relies throughout on figures, drawings, examples, and analogies, "not" mathematical proofs.

    In sections it is dated, but still provides a working knowledge of networks (LAN and internet). Also provides some nice code for certain concepts. If ever asked how networks (or the internet) work, generally I just pull out this book.

    This is an amazing service provider and it is a great idea to launch, and many people learn easily, in that case, you more about Professional Presentation Design Agency through this!

    amazing, fucking brilliant!!! ok, this is dry stuff - but the way it is written, it reads like a good novel... (hmmm might have outed me as a nerd here) seriously really entertaining read (for what it is and in general) highly recommended

    Pretty dry and difficult to follow for an introductory level book. Though for someone with background experience in the field who wants a resource book on a very wide range of topics, make sure to put it on your shelf.

    A really nice introduction but can be a bit too simplified sometimes.
