Part IV: Late Afternoon Internet Integration > Networking with Windows XP

Hour 13. Networking with Windows XP

This hour shows you ways to combine Windows XP and multiple PCs to develop a cost-effective, efficient, networked system in the small office or home office environment. The low prices and high power of today's PCs means that anyone can automate many areas of a small business, which was not possible just a few years ago.

The material in this lesson focuses as much on computer hardware as Windows XP's networking interface. The nature of networking makes the understanding of hardware as important as the understanding of software. New technology makes PC networks an inexpensive way to pull the power of multiple PCs together into a single system. Whether in a home or small office, networked PCs help ensure file integrity and enable you and people around you to share PC resources.

In this hour, you will

  • Learn what it takes to network

  • See your network hardware options

  • Understand network speed options

  • Master peer-to-peer networking

  • Connect multiple networked computers to a single Internet connection
