Description

Configuring Windows 10 wireless networking includes profiles, policies, and new settings. This course, Configuring Windows 10 Devices: Configure Networking, covers all aspects of Windows 10 networking in the enterprise environment. First, you'll learn the basic networking nuts and bolts: TCP/IP and name resolution. Next, you'll examine the implications of network location types: domain, private, and public. Finally, you'll explore how to manage network-based printing with the Print Management console, Group Policy, and location tracking. When you have finished this course, you will have the knowledge and skills necessary to secure the network with the Windows Firewall and IPsec, and how to manage everything with Group Policy. This course covers one of the main objective areas in the 70-697 certification exam and is the second in a series of nine courses to completely prepare for that exam.

Course Overview
Hi everyone. My name is Glenn Weadock, and my co-author, Mark Wilkins, and I welcome you to our course, Configuring Windows 10 Devices: Configure Networking. I am a consultant and seminar leader at Independent Software Inc. in Colorado and an author of over a dozen books on Windows Networking and certification. Mark is also a consultant and IT educator who has written books on Windows and Active Directory. This course deals with all aspects of Windows 10 networking in the enterprise environment. We start with basic networking nuts and bolts and then we examine network location types and move to wireless networking. Network printing, network security, and Group Policy settings all receive an in-depth treatment here. Some of the major topics that we'll cover include setting up TCP/IP and DNS, configuring network discovery, deploying wireless connections, managing network printers, and setting up firewall rules. And by the end of this course, you'll know how to ensure that devices can find each other by numerical address and by name, but the differences are between domain private and public profiles, when to set wireless connections as metered, how to use location tracking to help users find printers, when to use firewall rules versus connection security rules, how Group Policy works behind the scenes and how you can use it to control network access. Now before beginning this course, you should be familiar with Windows fundamentals, but no advanced knowledge is required. I hope you'll join us on this journey to learn how to set up and secure Windows 10 networking with the Configure Networking course, at Pluralsight.

Configuring Wireless Networking
Well, welcome to the class, welcome to Configuring Wireless Networking. This is part of the Windows 10 Configuring series. Welcome aboard. My name is Mark Wilkins, and I will be your guide through setting up wireless networking for Windows 10. Now this is probably a technology that you use all the time, you probably don't think about it. Maybe it's more of a technology for a phone or a tablet than a PC, but maybe you work in a big kiosk and you use wireless. So the topics in this module include wireless networking, no surprise there, then we'll take a look at the wireless settings that you might use personally versus what you might accept in a corporate environment. Then we'll take a look at wireless profiles. We'll look at how we can control all of this with Group Policy. We'll take a look at using metered networks. Maybe I don't want updates or downloads to happen on a network that I'm getting charged additional money for. And we'll also take a look at the wireless adapter and the ability to control its power management, something that you may not have thought of. And then we'll take a look at wireless administration at the command prompt, what utilities and things can we use. And then we'll do a bit of a wrap up. Now you may be thinking, what's in it for me. How can I do my job better with this material? Well, try these concepts on for size. You'll get current Windows 10 wireless setup knowledge. We're going to get really familiar with the settings console, so you're going to be able to support end users, walk them through the settings. You'll also know what you'd like to enable, what you'd like to disable, what you'd like to secure. And who knows, maybe you'll get a special badge from your boss saying can't believe all the knowledge you've got on wireless networking for Windows 10. So let's move onto the next clip and start learning about wireless networking with Windows 10.
