The Advantages of Networking Your Home Computers

Most of us rely heavily on our home computers for work and entertainment. It is not unusual these days for a home to have two or more computers. Creating a network in your home allows you to share documents, photos, videos, games, and more. It is also an affordable way to share your family’s high-speed Internet connection and computing resources.

A network is a system that connects two or more computers together so that they can share information and the use of peripherals. Before this technology was readily available, consumers had to buy each computer its own printer, scanner, and Internet access. This made adding another computer a very expensive proposition.

A home network offers a variety of advantages to the homeowner. A few reasons that networking is so popular in many homes include:

  • Broadband Internet Sharing
  • File Sharing
  • Peripheral Sharing
  • Multi-player gaming

There are two types of home networking systems, wired and wireless.  As you might guess, wired systems require that you physically connect each computer or device using specialized cables.  A wireless system requires no cables because it uses a radio wave to transmit data between the machines.
