Networking a Multimedia PC Entertainment System

Networking a Multimedia PC Entertainment System

There are many other applications in different areas like cooking, home planning, and so on that are not listed here. Depending upon specific hobbies and interests, these applications are all potential candidates for a multimedia PC entertainment system that displays maps, recipes, and checkbook information on a large screen monitor for several family members to view together.

Multimedia PC entertainment systems can function as standalone devices, but they really become much more useful when networked. A wireless LAN is the best solution because the data volumes are typically not large and the flexibility of wireless installation permits locating the multimedia PC entertainment system anywhere in a room. Further, the Web camera security monitors are wireless. Consequently, a wireless home-office network is an ideal solution for connecting the multimedia PC entertainment system to the Internet, to the Web camera security monitors, and to printers located in other areas of the home. Wireless LANs were covered in detail in Chapter 4.
