What's So Hot About...

Connect Your Family with Home Networking

What's So Hot About Home Networking?

You know what’s awesome about home networking? On a beautiful day, you can sit poolside with your laptop and easily stream ESPN3.com online. At the same time, your spouse can do the family banking with the PC in the den and send statements wirelessly to the printer down the hall. And on the front porch, your daughter can update her Facebook page and IM her friends, all on her new netbook.

Staying Connected

As you can see, home networking, or WiFi as it’s sometimes called, is the digital age’s way of keeping families connected while giving everyone their space. It’s a convenient and easy way to share Internet service and enjoy it at the same time, anywhere in the home. It doesn’t stop with computers, laptops and netbooks – a home network can also connect printers, gaming consoles and music players, as well as tablets and smartphones.

Benefits of Home Networking

Here are some of the top benefits of home networking.

  • Share the connection. Share Internet service with your family or roommates at the same time.
  • The freedom to move around. Connect to your wireless network from anywhere in your home and your outside property. You’re no longer tied to just one room or indoors.
  • Pay for one, share with many. Sharing a single Internet connection saves the household money.
  • Make sharing between computers easier. Running between computers to print or copy files is an inconvenience. Print a document or copy a file from any computer in the house.
  • Setup is easier than you think. Install your home network yourself or call in experts.

Protecting your Home Network

Safeguarding your home network is relatively easy to do and will help ensure that your Internet experience is the best it can be. By buying and properly setting up a wireless router with the latest security features, you’ll prevent anyone you don’t know from trying to connect to your wireless network.
