Introduction to Home Networking
A home network is the connection of two or more computers, printers and other devices in your household. All of the computers and devices in the network can communicate with each other, allowing shared Internet access.

There are two types of networks: Wired and Wireless. A wired network allows you to connect multiple computers in your home using cables between each computer. A wireless network allows you to connect computers without using cables between each computer.

Who should use a home network?
