Chapter 17. Setting up a Small Network > Running the Network Setup Wizard

Running the Network Setup Wizard

When you’ve installed your network hardware according to the manufacturer’s instructions, and everything’s working properly, you’re ready to run the Network Setup Wizard on every computer on the network. Windows 98/Me/2000/NT PCs can coexist peacefully with XP on the same network. If you’re using Internet Connection Sharing, run the wizard on the host computer first.

Even if your network seems to be operating properly, play by the rules: Run the wizard to set workgroup names and IP addresses, configure file-sharing permissions, enable or disable the Internet Connection Firewall, and modify the registry. After the wizard finishes, you can tweak network settings manually.
