Computer networks are computers in an office setting per se, and also computers connected together around the world via the Internet.

You are sharing information from around the world, and can do so at 'light speed'.

(Such as we do here on the FixYa Product Support website)

Vast amounts of information are shared daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly.
This has improved the way of life tremendously. (IMHO)

Benefits and drawbacks associated with the adoption of network cpmputers


depends on the setup of the network for one. if it just simple setup then allows sharing of files, a single internet connection, some standalone capability for any problems if the computers get virus infection, internal emails/memos and some network back ups. downside software licence for many separate computers.server based. the computers can access one source for information. allowing users to log in and get their files from any machine. easy backups, licensing can work out cheaper for many machines. very easy to share information. however vulnerable to viruses, can be expensive to maintain if external company setup. servers can be expensive to buy and everyone has a problem if the network crashes, often no one can use the computers if not working.
networking is generally a positive thing and id recommend it.
hope this helps

Business Computer


The computer small business in many ways the typical home computer. This means that the PC at home has many features as an integrated system for small business, but with more diverse functions. A type of software companies specialized small equipment. Some equipment will be installed with software such as Power Point presentation. This creates a more rational system of sharing. At the other end of the spectrum of computer system designs for small businesses. A computer designed for graphic design in general, has a very different set of specifications that the system of information exchanges. The picture of this guy probably would be built with high-end graphics cards have more RAM to support the necessary programs, and have a bigger hard drive for storing large graphics filesSince web design is very graphic intensive, the system is also equipped with a graphics card better than most. The computer must be connected to the branch network and the Internet, especially with a broadband connection. The workspace based on the Web also have the ability to share information, create presentations, create notes and send emails Inter. Hard drives in the small business computer is usually a large size to store all files associated with each page created.

Set up a computer-to-computer (ad hoc) network


An ad hoc network is a temporary connection between computers and devices used for a specific purpose, such as sharing documents during a meeting or playing multiple-player computer games. You can also temporarily share an Internet connection with other people on your ad hoc network, so those people don’t have to set up their own Internet connections. Ad hoc networks can only be wireless, so you must have a wireless network adapter installed in your computer to set up or join an ad hoc network.

Click to open Connect to a Network.

Click Set up a connection or network.

Click Set up an ad hoc (computer-to-computer) network, click Next, and then follow the steps in the wizard.

Notes
If one or more of the networked computers is joined to a domain, you need to have a user account on that computer to see and access shared items on it.

If the networked computers are not joined to a domain, but you want to require people to have a user account on your computer for access to shared items, turn on password protected sharing in Network and Sharing Center.

To turn on password protected sharing
Click to open Network and Sharing Center.

Under Sharing and Discovery, if password protected sharing is off, click the arrow button to expand the section, click Turn on password protected sharing, and then click Apply. If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

An ad hoc network is automatically deleted after all users disconnect from the network or when the person who set up the network disconnects and goes out of range of the other users of the network, unless you choose to make it a permanent network when you create it.

If you share your Internet connection, Internet connection sharing (ICS) will be disabled if you disconnect from the ad hoc network, you create a new ad hoc network without disconnecting from the old ad hoc network for which you enabled ICS, or you log off and then log back on (without disconnecting from the ad hoc network).

If you set up an ad hoc network and share your Internet connection, and then someone logs on to the same computer by using Fast User Switching, the Internet connection will still be shared, even if you didn't intend to share it with that person.

I hope you all found this information useful and helpful.

I want to network two pc with windows xp using crossover cable,, how do i do it step by step pls.


Connect two computers using a crossover cable
If you need to connect two computers but you don't have access to a network and can't set up an ad hoc network, you can use an Ethernet crossover cable to create a direct cable connection.
Generally speaking, a crossover cable is constructed by reversing ("crossing over") the order of the wires inside so that it can connect two computers directly. A crossover cable looks almost exactly like a regular Ethernet cable (a "straight-through" cable), so make sure you have a crossover cable before following these steps.
Before buying a crossover cable, check your network adapter. Some newer network adapters automatically "cross over" when they detect that they are connected directly to another network adapter using a regular Ethernet cable.
To connect two computers with a crossover cable
This works best if both computers are running this version of Windows.
Plug each end of the crossover cable into a network port on the back of each computer.
On one of the computers that is running this version of Windows, do the following:
Open Network and Sharing Center by clicking the Start button , clicking Control Panel, clicking Network and Internet, and then clicking Network and Sharing Center.
In the network map at the top of Network and Sharing Center, double-click the Unidentified network? icon. (If you have more than one network, this icon will be labeled Multiple networks.)
If network discovery and file sharing are turned off, in Network, click the Information bar containing the following message: "Network discovery and file sharing are turned off. Network computers and devices are not visible. Click to change...," and then click Turn on network discovery and file sharing. If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
In the Network discovery and file sharing dialog box, select one of the following options:
No, make the network that I am connected to a private network
Yes, turn on network discovery and file sharing for all public networks
The first option is usually the best choice because it only affects the network that you are connected to.
Notes
Networks created with crossover cables are automatically set up as "Public place" networks, which means that network discovery, file sharing, and printer sharing are off by default.
For Gigabit Ethernet or token ring networks, you will need a slightly different kind of crossover cable. For more information, contact a cable manufacturer.
Icons for both computers should now be visible in the Network window. Double-click each computer icon to share printers and other resources.
Note
If one of the computers is running Windows XP, it can take some time for that computer to appear in the Network window. You might need to move both computers to the same workgroup. You can do that by changing the workgroup on either computer. To change a workgroup, see Join or create a workgroup. You might also need to turn on file and printer sharing on the computer running Windows XP.
Hope this help!

Can't connect 2 pc to 1 printer


Steps to fix your issue
  1. install printer driver on one computer
  2. Make sure both computers are connected in same network by ethernet cable or wireless connection.
  3. share the printer on 1st computer
  4. access the shared printer from 2nd computer through network
This way your can access one printer from 2 computers. This setup work only when the 1st computer is turned on because HP leaser jet don't have the capability to work as network printer as they cannot acquire IP address.

If u need further information on how to configure 2 computer please refer below link

Limited connectivity


A network hub allows computers to be connected together...up to 12 of them in this case...but it doesn't provided any other network services such as DHCP (automatic address assignment). I may be able to provide better information if you can tell me what operating system you're using.

Here's one way to set up a network for file sharing...if you're using Microsoft Windows1.gif XP:

Connect the computers to the hub and turn them all on. You may need to manually assign addresses to the computers, (ask if you need a detailed procedure) but Windows XP will usually assign itself a default address.

On each computer, click on Start -- Control Panel -- System -- Computer Name -- Network ID -- Now give the computer a name and Workgroup name. In order for the computers to share files1.gif, the workgroup names must be identical on every computer.

Next, click on My Computer and Right-Click on Shared Documents -- Sharing & Security -- Share this folder on the network

Now if you click on My Network Places, it should be possible to see the shared folders on the other computers.

Good luck with this....and I hope this is helpful!!
