Configuring Software for Your Home Network Windows Vista and later versions Use wizards launched from Network and Sharing Center in Control Panel Before running wizards: 1. Install network adapters on each node. 2. For a wired network, plug all the cables into the router, network adapters, and so on. Copyright 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. Publishing as Prentice Hall

24 Configuring Software for Your Home Network 3. Make sure your cable/DSL modem is connected to your router and the Internet. 4. Turn on your equipment in the following order: a. Cable/DSL modem b. Router c. All computers and peripherals (printers, scanners, and so on)

Copyright 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. Publishing as Prentice Hall 25 Networking Multiple Versions of Windows Set up Windows 7 and Vista machines first Automatically detect other computers running Windows on network Windows XP will need adjustment to see other versions of Windows Give each Windows computer a unique

name Place all computers in the same workgroup Copyright 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. Publishing as Prentice Hall 26 Configuring a Router to Connect to the Internet Contact ISP for special settings Access router from Web browser Enter username and password Use routers wizard to set up connection

using settings and info provided by ISP Test Internet connection speed Speedtest.net Copyright 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. Publishing as Prentice Hall 27

Securing Wireless Networks Wireless network range doesnt stop at the property line Default device and network ID settings allow intruders to enter the network Internet bandwidth can be stolen Computers can be vulnerable to hacker intrusion and takeover Copyright 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. Publishing as Prentice Hall 28 Securing Wireless Networks

To secure a wireless network, do the following: Change your network name (SSID) Disable SSID broadcast Change the default password on your router Turn on security protocols Implement media access control Limit your signal range Apply firmware upgrades Copyright 2011 Pearson Education, Inc.
