Summary

The home network is the next generation of home user activity. Now that a desktop or two is in just about every home, the home user is becoming more educated and sophisticated in the usage of networking technology. DSL, cable modems, and wireless connectivity are allowing faster connections that make sharing of one Internet connection in the household feasible. The days of struggling with a 28.8 or 56Kbps connection are slowly coming to a close.

Home networking technology is clearly necessary. You have to protect yourself and your entire environment; with great power comes great responsibility. You are now responsible for an entire network (which might only be two or three computers). Your always-on connectivity for your family means you have to have security procedures in place at all times.
