Different Ways To Set Up Home Network in Windows® XP System
What are the various ways to set up a home network in Windows XP systems?
A home network can be enabled in a Windows XP system through various ways. The home network connection can either be wired or wireless. In wired connections, the user can enable the home network option through the use of various physical media. The computers should be connected through wires with the help of a router. A wireless connection can be established without any physical medium and thus the user can stay at any position within the wireless range. For wireless connections, wireless-enabled devices are required to connect the system to the network. Configuring a Virtual Private Network is another method that is used to set up or access a home network. Home network connections can also be enabled through local area connections.

Reasons behind setting up home network
A home network is set up in a computer so that files and devices can be shared with other systems. A home network is also needed for sharing data among computers that are connected to each other. Home networks are also required when computers within a small office space or even within a house are to be connected to each other.
The issues that can arise when a user connects two computers using a home network are connection problems and network configuration errors. The connection issues arise when a system is not able to recognize or access the IP address of some other device due to some problems. Wrong configurations that are set up for home networking within different systems also create problems. Issues with the network adapter can also lead to problems like connection failure, intermittent connections etc.
The issues that arise can be fixed by following these tips -Install a network adapter in your Windows computer before configuring the network connection. The driver software for the networking devices should also be installed. The configuration should be enabled with more care and the various options should be provided correctly. The configuration of the IP address for the systems that are to be connected through a home network should be done before the connection is eventually estblished.
