Setting up a home network is a fairly easy task. The question becomes what is it you want to network together and why? Network cabling Nashville is when we take CAT5 cable and run it through our home and offices to create a wired network. There are also other cables such as CAT6 and more that can be used for advanced or higher end connections but the principle is the same.
How many devices do you want to network?
When creating a network you will want to determine how many devices you want to network together. The more devices that you network together the greater the strain on the network. For most people connecting a home computer to a printer or a television to a video system will be the extent of their network creation.
Why create a network?
People want to create a network for several reasons. The first is to have the ability to share files back and forth with others. This is important if you want to work on a project together and don’t want to risk losing the file. Another more common reason is to create a network for gaming.
Gaming is a huge reason to create a network. When you connect to a network with games each person can play a character and either help or fight each other. When on a network you can also allow others to join your network from all over the world.
When creating a network make sure to have security in mind. When we have a secure network people won’t be able to just log in and cause issues. The last thing that we want to happen is have all of our data stolen or files corrupted.
Using a strong password, unique ID’s and even a firewall will help protect the network. Just remember, your networks is as strong as your weakest link.
