"As the guy who reviews networking products, I generally receive a couple of e-mails from readers a day, and most of them, in one way or another, are asking about the basics of networking (as in computer to computer, I am not talking about social networks here.)"
This primer may not be new information for readers of this site but it could be a good way to get your relatives up to speed when they ask you to go over and help them set up their internet network. This article explains in an easy to understand manner the various types of networking, components, set up, security and all things home network.
It starts with wired networking and all of the components. Next up are wireless networking, wireless networking security and finally powerline networking. Within each section are concise explains of components, setup and a quick explanation of how each item works.
If you know of anyone who has a question regarding home networking, this is a good place to start.
