Networks for Home Use

If you have more than one PC in your home you can connect them all via a network. This will enable you to use shared resources such as Internet connections, printers and other machines, as well as shared folders and documents. Simple networks are known as peer-to-peer (P2P) networks, and don’t require expensive Professional or Server versions of Windows to set up. You can quickly set up a peer-to-peer network using the cheaper Home versions of Windows.

Setting up a network has lots of benefits; you will save a lot of time and money by organising your documents centrally, and sharing expensive devices such as printers.

In this article, I’ll show you how to set up your own peer-to-peer network for free and with minimal effort.
