A computer network can simplify one’s technical capabilities if they own multiple computers and the various technical equipment used to enhance computer functioning. When computers talk to each other through a network, tasks can be more efficient and people can save time and money, streamlining systems. Computer networks are great for home or small businesses, and can also be wide area networks (WAN) reaching across the world to bring shared technology to large corporations or global industries. Another important facet is computer network security which operators should be aware of when looking at networking through a WAN.

When wanting networking in the home, a network will allow the system operator to share a single Internet connection for all of home computers. Today’s wireless networking is emerging as the easiest and least expensive option for multi-computer connections. Those wanting to use wireless connections for their networking can connect computers anywhere in the home or office without the need or problem of wires. The computers connect to the network by using radio signals and can be as much as 100 feet apart, making wireless connections an attractive option for many.

Networking will also allow a family or business to share various files. Windows allows for easy entry to another computer’s files, making it possible to access information from one desktop to another. Other computer network activities include: sharing a printer, playing games that allow multiple users on different desktops, and sending output devices to other computers in the home.

Computer network security should be a concern for all. “But thou, O LORD, art a shield for me; my glory, and the lifter up of mine head” (Psalm 3:3). For the body and soul, God is the protector. For computers, protection comes in a different form. A firewall may be implemented to filter the information coming through the Internet connection into the private system in the home or business. This firewall will protect the network from offensive websites and potential hackers. There are different levels of security, and the reason for use of computer networking will determine how much security should be installed. The highest levels of security will block out everything coming into the desktop, even email, with the lowest levels of computer network security allowing in email spam and undetected viruses.

Researching the Internet can teach anyone wanting to learn about a computer network for home or office. There are websites that offer step -by- step instructions on networking and sharing files. Also, the Internet will prove to be an excellent source of information about computer network security. Desktop owners need to read up on the latest information so they can get the most out of their desktop.
