Time to hit the books!
[by Susan Fogarty, Senior Site Editor]
sfogarty@techtarget.com

Routers are the meat and potatoes of your everyday work, right? But
our favorite network devices are getting more complex, security flaws
are being announced on a regular basis, and new versions of IOS boast
more and more features. Combine all that, and the chance that you
could make some tiny misconfiguration increases dramatically.

That's where we come in. Our router crash courses offer extensive
technical advice to help you optimize your router configurations and
troubleshoot any problems that may crop up. If you're newer to
routers, check out our ERROR: BAD LINK DATA [Router Crash Course to
learn the basics. For seasoned router jockeys, our ] Advanced Router
Crash Course provides more in-depth information.

Our crash courses include specific steps you can follow, as well as
scripts that you can download and easily apply to your own hardware.
If you work with routers, you can't afford to miss them.
