Home networking involves linking your home PC to the internet as well as other computers and printers.

This will involve cables, wifi, routers & hubs.

  1. 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.
  2. 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
  3. You can connect using cables or wireless your pc will need to have a network card this is usually integrated on the motherboard or a PCI network card or a usb network adapter (A matter of speed cabled networks are up to 10 times faster then wireless)
  4. If you do not want cables all over the house you can use powerline adapters that transmit data over the buildings mains electrical supply.
  5. The broadband router acts as a DHCP server and allocates temporary licenses for devices to join your network, your pc will need to have Obtain an IP address automatically & Obtain DNS server address automatically enabled, these settings are found within Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) Properties.
  6. We would also recommend that you change the workgroup name from the default to something unique especially if you are considering a wireless setup.
  7. Remember if your broadband connection is at home every extension attached to the line with broadband on it need an adsl filter, if they are not filter they will disrupt your broadband signal.
  8. If you intend to use a wireless connection see our Home Wi-fi page for tips on security.
  9. To share printers they need sharing enabled, right click and select sharing on the printer you will then have to check sharing.
  10. A ghost in the machine! Be advised 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.

 

Common problems

No internet Is the router turned on?

Check that your network is connected?

Unplug your router and leave it for 30 seconds before reconnecting. You may have to restart your PC?
