How to Set up Your Computer for Home Networking?

Microsoft Windows XP makes it easy to configure your computer for home networking. The Network Setup Wizard walks you through the process, asking you for information one item at a time. After you add your computer to your home network, you'll be able to print to a printer on your home network (the printer will no longer need to be attached directly to your computer), and to access the other computers and devices connected to your home network. You'll be able to share files, which means you can get data from any computer you connect to the network. You can even share one Internet connection among all your computers.

Before you set up your computer for home networking, make sure you have:

• Contacted an Internet service provider (ISP) to acquire an Internet connection to your home.

• Installed a network adapter—wired or wireless—in your computer.

To use the Network Setup Wizard to set up your computer for home networking, follow these steps on each computer in your home network

Step1: Log on as a member of the Administrators group.

Step2. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.

Step7. If the wizard informs you that it has found disconnected hardware, make sure your network adapter is connected as described in Add a computer to your network. It's okay to have a disconnected network adapter if you're using a wireless network connection or if you connect to the network using a USB (Universal Serial Bus) cable. If you're sure everything has already been properly connected, select Ignore disconnected network hardware. Otherwise, connect your network cables, and leave the check box cleared. Then click Next.

Step8. If you connect your computer directly to the modem provided by your ISP, click This computer connects directly to the Internet. If you connect your computer to a router, click This computer connects to the Internet through a residential gateway. If you're not sure, leave the default setting. Then click Next.
