Setting Up and Using Networks

Setting up a computer network provides connectivity between your computer and the Internet, another
computer, or a network. For example, with a network set up in a home or small office you can print to a
shared printer, access drives and files on another computer, browse other networks, or access the Internet.
You can set up a local area network (LAN) using a network or broadband modem cable or set up a
wireless LAN (WLAN).
The Windows XP and Windows Vista operating systems provide wizards to help guide you through the
process of networking computers. For more information about Networking, access the Help and Support
Center (click Start→ Help and Support).

Connecting a Network or Broadband Modem Cable

Before you connect your computer to a network, the computer must have a network adapter installed
and a network cable connected to it.
1 Connect the network cable to the network adapter connector on the back of your computer.
NOTE:
Insert the cable connector until it clicks into place, and then gently pull the cable to ensure that it is
securely attached.
2 Connect the other end of the network cable to a network connection device or a network wall
connector.
NOTE:
Do not use a network cable with a telephone wall connector.
