  • Home and networks
    • Most homes with a home network use it primarily to allow users to share an internet connection. You need to know how to set up a network and the types of network available.
    • Local area network
      • To create a home network you need to set up a local area network or LAN. This connects all the computers in the house so that resources can be shared. Benefits of a home network include:
        • Sharing the internet connection. Sharing files, including backing up files. Sharing peripherals, for example printers. Internet telephone services.
    • Routers
    • You need a network interface card (NIC) to connect the computers to the network unless you are using WI-FI dongles.
