When it comes to the need for technology, it really seems to be growing on the home front. Many families are beginning to install home networks. With home offices on the rise and the youth demanding to have internet access for their studies, entertainment and communication, it is needed.

The easiest way to install another computer onto your current network is to get an router if it is not already built into your DSL modem. There are many adapters that have multiple Ethernet ports. You can hard wire the ports to each computer and connect the network that way.

If you do not want to deal with all the connection cables, another option is to use a wireless router. The router sends out the signal from a main computer, while the other computer has a wireless receiver, and they are able to access the internet that way.

There are some families that have combined their businesses into one home office, and they have two different computers. One for mom’s business and the other for dad’s. This sets a great example for children. They learn about how to run a business as well as how people can work together and share space. Many young people are discovering ways that they can create their own jobs, rather than try to work for a fast food company.

Being able to create a home network has many advantages to all family members, and can lessen conflict when it comes to several people needing to use the internet at the same time.
