 Post subject: What's on Your Home Network?
New postPosted: Tue Feb 09, 2010 11:22 pm

Next week, on Windows Guides, the Windows Home Network series starts, which will show users how to set up a network, configure file sharing, media streaming, and automated network backups. To kick start the series, what do you--the pros--use on your home network?

What I use:

Rca VH606 Digitaal Rg6 Coaxial Cable (Wall to Modem)
Motorola Surfboard SB5101 Cable Modem
Linksys by Cisco WRT54G2 Wireless-G Broadband Router
Category 5e (Cat5e) CMR Ethernet Patch Cables

Image

What do you use?

Not sure what you need for your home network? Get help here.

Ha! Not much! :lol:

My network consists of a Dell Inspiron 6000 with its built-in wireless hardware, my wife's HP desktop with a wireless card (I'm too lazy to pull the PC out of its hole to see the brand) and an iPhone 3GS. Oh and occasionally, I pull out my old IBM ThinkPad which has an old PCMCIA wireless adapter. These are all wirelessly networked via a Linksys WRT54G wireless router which gets its Internet feed from a Comcast-supplied RCA cable modem. As long as I can get a signal out at the pool in the summer, I'm happy.

Before you see the following image, I know that it is horrible. I just threw it together really quickly. FYI - Solid lines are connected by wires. Blue X's mean that the device is shared. Image

Bassfisher - That looks awesome. Did you design that as a mock up or is that real software? If it's real, what it is?

Yeah it's a real software program that comes with the newer Linksys routers. I saw it when my dad bought a new router; Linksys WRT54GS2 Wireless-G. So I went to the Linksys website and found it and downloaded it, it works quite well.

Here is a download link.
