Why Use a Home Network?
Shared Internet Access
Are you paying for multiple Internet access accounts to allow two or more family members to be online at the same time? Save money with a home network and one Internet access account. Networked computer users can concurrently share a single Internet connection using a phone modem, cable modem, DSL, wireless, satellite or ISDN connection.
Shared Files and Printers
A network will eliminate the need to install the same software on multiple machines and shuffle your data files from one computer to another on disks. It will also allow a group of computers to share a single printer, cutting the expense of purchasing multiple printers.
If you are a "gamer," then you know that multiplayer games are a driving force behind home networks. Internet gaming environments are increasing and improving. Players using home networks can interact with each other in the home while competing with others across the globe.
Who Uses Home Networking?
Many home network users are home-based consultants and entrepreneurs who are familiar with the benefits of the traditional office network environment. This rising group of professionals often travel with a laptop and usually own a PC for the family, as well. Home networks make it easier to share Internet access, printers and files between these systems.
Families with Multiple Computers
A new user group has emerged in home network trends - families with multiple computer users sharing one Internet access account. Instead of family members taking turns to access the Internet, the home network enables multiple computers to simultaneously share Internet access, files, software and other equipment. Using the home network, the kids can play against each other without having to be in the same room - think about the peace and quiet!
