What is a Home Network and why would I want one?

ANSWER A home network is a group of computers, printers and other devices that are connected together with wires or wireless, allowing different users to exchange information and share hardware, software and Internet connections.

- Use a single Internet connection on different computers at the same time
- Share a single printer between different computers
- Share files such as images, music, movies and documents between computers in the network
- Play games that allow multiple players at different computers

We were pleasantly surprised to meet Tomasz and discover how brilliant he was with computer technology! He quickly pinpointed our computer problems, explained them to us, then repaired them. He also showed us how to click onto new data in our computer that we never knew existed! Many thanks to you!
