Welcome to Three Macs & a Printer, a site that explains Macintosh networking in plain English, intended for novice and experienced Mac user alike. It focuses on small networks (from two to ten Macs or so), explaining both concepts and setup instructions. Where appropriate, pictures accompany the instructions to ease in comprehension. And hey, it's free! (My favorite price.)
Where to start?
To move around the site, use the navigation bar on the left. Each listing goes to the relevant page: How to network two Macs tells you how to hook two Macs together, What is Ethernet? explains Ethernet on a conceptual level, and so forth.
New to networking?
If you're new to networking in general, I suggest looking at the Networking explained section first. The How are networks useful? page talks about why people set up networks, How networking works explains general networking concepts, and Which network should I use? talks about different kinds of networks.

For the convenience of readers who want to read it offline, I've made my entire website (pages, graphics, everything) available as a single download. The file is a self-extracting, self-mounting disk image that you can browse as if you were reading it on-line. I update the download file regularly to match the content of the website.
