Chapter 22. Setting Up a Small Network > Setting Up a Peer-to-Peer Network

Setting Up a Peer-to-Peer Network

One of the biggest improvements in Windows Vista is in networking setup. Specifically, if you have your computers connected correctly (more on that in a second), Vista sets up the appropriate networking settings automatically. It’s true plug-and-play: You plug your machine into the network and you can play with network resources within a few seconds. Note that this doesn’t apply to wireless connections which, for security reasons, require a few extra steps. Although, as you’ll soon see, Vista enables you to “save” a wireless connection, so the next time your computer comes within range of that network, Vista makes the connection automatically.

Note

If you want even more detailed information about setting up a small network, check out my book Networking with Microsoft Windows Vista (Que 2008).
