HOW TO BUILD A LAN

Overview Building your own Ethernet LAN (local area network) is not nearly as difficult as it may seem. Using features from your OS and some special hardware (including cables, NICs, a hub/router, and an Internet connection), you can easily, and quickly, build a nifty home network complete with Internet access and file-sharing capabilities. The necessary hardware is easily obtained, and reasonably priced, making an Ethernet LAN possible for anyone with multiple computers, and the need to network them.

General Information A clear understanding of a LAN, as well as its limitations, is very helpful when considering the structure of your Ethernet LAN.
