Hour 13. Networking with Windows XP > Networking Your Environment

Networking Your Environment

Many homes and offices have more than one PC. Perhaps you use a laptop on the road and a desktop at work. Perhaps you replaced an older PC with a more modern one and the older PC is relegated to the kids'room. The victims of today's low-priced, high-powered PCs are yesterday's PCs. Older PCs are too expensive to throw out, they aren't powerful enough to use as a serious business tool, and you've depreciated their costs so you cannot donate them for a tax break.

You can now begin to use that second, slower PC in your home office. Such PCs used to be discarded, but new advances in simple networking technology enable the home and small office user to take advantage of every computer. Although the slower machine might not be your primary computer, you can use it to access the other PC's files when you are in another room, putting the slower machine back into operation once again.
