Home networking involves linking your home PC to the internet as
well as other computers and printers.
This will involve cables,
wifi, routers & hubs.
- You can connect two PC's back to back
using a crossover cable, this is a special cable that fools
the PC's into thinking they are on a network. You can then
share a printer.
- If you have broadband then there is a
strong possibility that you have a network. To connect to
the internet you will use a
Broadband Modem which is usually integrated with a
router. This acts as a gateway to internet, all pc's wishing
to access the internet need to connect to the
broadband modem router

anything shared on your PC is open to the network. We had an
instance recently where a young girl kept getting woken in
the night by her printer printing a test page, we where
asked to look into it. The family had a friend setup their
home wireless network he had not set any security on the
system and had shared her printer. The culprit turned out to
be a friend who was connecting to their wireless network and
sending test prints to her printer.
