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.

- 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
