I am searching for a comprehensive book on wireless technology that covers in detail almost everything about wireless technology, including the related protocols, security, hacks, etc. I know it is not possible to cover this in a single book. Can you suggest a basic book to start with, and then books to go to the next level? I want to make my career in the field of wireless security.

    Are you asking specifically for a book on wireless security, or wireless in general? If the latter, I'd recommend asking on superuser.com. Regardless, lists of books are borderline ontopic - will probably be made CW... – AviD Apr 20 '11 at 15:03
  • I think I require both. – narayan May 3 '11 at 5:02

    as I said, here you can ask for security books. Btw, do you really mean "wireless", or did you actually mean more specifically "wifi"? – AviD May 3 '11 at 8:30
  • Here I mean wireless. I will start with wifi but I want to go for complete 802.11. The book suggested by lbwtz2 is good. I have started to read that. I will wait for further suggestions. – narayan May 4 '11 at 9:14

Start with this: Wireless Security Know it All

Is focused on the security aspect but it also goes deep in many other theoretical topics, like protocols, signal theory etc.

  • The book alas doesn't dwell long on modulation; a satisfactory introductory text on general communications stuff would be John G. Proakis, Mahmoud Salehi, Digital Communications (5th ed., 2008). ISBN 9780072957167. YMMV – Deer Hunter Nov 2 '12 at 14:12
