Home Network Integration
You might need a nerd if…
- You have lots of devices in your home but you can’t share files between them
- You have areas in your house that don’t get a good Internet signal
- You’re worried that your home network might not be secure
Why do I need a home network?Here are a few examples of how a home network can make your life a whole lot easier.
Share files with any computer in the houseA lot of households have “the good computer.” It’s the new computer with a nice big hard drive and a big screen. Then there’s all the other devices. Maybe you have a few iPads around the house. Perhaps there’s an old desktop computer out in the garage. With a properly configured home network, all your devices can access files and programs stored on that good computer. No more painful process of transferring files from one device to another. Your home network allows you to have a one-stop-shop for all those files.
Share your peripheralsJust like you might have a family computer, you’re also likely to have one or more devices which are for everyone to use. For example, a printer. If you don’t have a home network, the only way to use these devices would be to transfer a file to the computer to which it’s attached. With a home network, that printer will be accessible to every device in the house. You can even print while you’re out!
Access your entertainment however you likeA home network opens up so many interesting options for entertainment. Picture watching your favorite Netflix shows in bed on your iPad or sending pictures and YouTube videos to your television. Maybe you’d like to be able to browse your cable television guide and record your favorite TV shows from your phone. All these possibilities and more become available when you have a properly configured home network.

I only have one computer. Would a home network really help me?
