Home networking is easy when you ask an expert

For most of us, it's not about the technologyit's about what we can do with it. A home network lets you share Internet connections, printers, and files between two or more computers. Go wireless, and you can read your e-mail, surf the Web, or download new music from anywhere in or around your home. And with the improvements and added security features in Service Pack 2, Windows XP home networking is safer and more fun than ever before. Paul Thurrott shows you just how it's done, in language that makes sense.
