Chapter 22. Setting Up a Small Network > Viewing a Network Map

Viewing a Network Map

The new Network Map feature gives you a visual display of everything your computer is connected to: network connections (wired and wireless), ad hoc (computer-to-computer) connections, Internet connections, and the devices associated with these connections. Network Map also gives you a visual display of the connection status so that you can easily spot problems.

The Network and Sharing Center displays your local portion of the network map, and the layout depends on your current connections. You always see an icon for your computer on the left. If your computer is connected to a network (as shown earlier in Figure 22.9), a green line joins the computer icon and the network icon. If the network is connected to the Internet, another green line joins the network icon and the Internet icon on the right. If there is no connection, you see a red X through the connection line.
