Set up a basic home network that uses the Windows 7 operating system.
Set up a basic home network:
Most people set up a home network so that they can share folders, files, and an Internet connection across all computers in the home. This document provides step-by-step instructions for how to connect multiple computers on a wired or wireless home network.
A network is basically a group of devices that share a connection. This connection can range from a single cable that connects two computers to a more complex wireless signal that allows multiple devices to communicate all at once. Sharing a connection allows the devices to share information, such as personal files and Internet access.
The most common home-network setup includes an ISP modem, router, network cables, and computers or other network-enabled devices (such as printers or game consoles).
