HandymanWire - Wiring a Home Network

Some of the benefits of a home network are:
  • You can share files
  • You can share printers, scanners, etc.
  • You can make backup copies of your important files on another machine
  • You can extend the life of one of your old computers by installing a giant hard drive and let it live out its remaining years as an MP3 server, a backup file server, etc.
