Sick of playing Internet tag with other family members wanting to get online and tying up phone lines?

Cable Modems & DSL
When you get a Cable Modem or DSL connection, you may run into a problem: Everyone in your house will want to use it. And so to preserve domestic harmony, you'd be wise to connect, or "network," all your home's computers. Why? So that everyone can connect to your new broadband connection at the same time. The process isn't without headaches, but the payoff is worth it.
Home/Office Networking: Benefits
Until recently, home-networking approaches -- patchwork solutions at best -- were riddled with bugs and expensive. They also required new wiring and a Ph.D. in networking. Things, however, have changed. Today's home-computer users can choose from several relatively inexpensive options to create reliable, cohesive networks that deliver several benefits:
|Household members can access the Internet at the same time
using one Internet service provider (ISP) account.
||Each household member can share the same printers, modems
and peripherals from any computer in the house.
||Kids can play video games against each other, as well as
with other out-of-the-house online users, on the Internet.
||Cable modem and Digital Subscriber Line (DSL) connections
not only deliver the fastest Internet links, but let household members talk
on the phone while they're online.|
To get started with basic home networking, you must physically connect your computers, and then give those computers access to the Internet through a cable or DSL modem. There are several ways to connect computers:
|Ethernet, which is the most widely used networking
||Universal Serial Bus, which is easier to use than Ethernet
if your computers already have USB ports.
||Home Phone Line Networking (HPN), which is useful for
connecting computers scattered throughout the house.
||Wireless networking products, which are attractive if you
want to surf the Web from any room in the house using a laptop.
||Power-line home-networking products connect devices using
power outlets in your home.|
What can I connect to a home network?
