If you have more than one computer in your
home, you quickly discover what a hassle it is to be shoved
aside when someone else needs the printer--which happens
to be attached to your PC. You're also probably tired of
running up and down the stairs to transfer files using floppy
disks. And no one likes fighting over the only computer
with Internet access. No wonder you're interested in home
But aside from family unity, there's also the little matter
of comfort. Where would you rather answer important e-mail--in
your home office, hunched over your desk, or in the living
room, with your feet on the ottoman?
Better yet, how about out on the veranda while enjoying
the sunshine? Sound appealing?

Computer security risks to home users
We use computers for everything from banking and investing to
shopping and communicating with others through email or chat programs.
Although you may not consider your communications "top secret,"
you probably do not want strangers reading your email, using your
computer to attack other systems, sending forged email from your
computer, or examining personal information stored on your computer.
We strongly recommend the use of some type of firewall product,
such as a router or a personal firewall software package. Intruders
are constantly scanning home user systems for known vulnerabilities.
Network firewalls (whether software or hardware-based) can provide
some degree of protection against these attacks.
All our networks are setup using a router instead of a hub. The
router is more expensive but it will provide much better security
than a hub.

of setting up an affordable, secure home network.
