Network Setup

Nowadays, more and more people are choosing to work from home. If you have two or more computers in your home along with 2 or more employees for your small business, you’ll need a home network setup. This will allow you to run two or more computers along with printers. You’ll be able to share your files, access the internet from all computers and use a printer that is connected to each computer. You can also play TV, videos and digital music.

Setting up a small business network on Windows XP is easier than ever. You can also create a wireless network so that you can use your laptop anywhere within your home or office. We at www.nuaddition.com are here to help you with any questions you might have regarding this necessary feature. Following are instructions on how to set up your home network.
