How to set up a network in Windows 7?

We all are well aware that a computer without access to the Web today is simply unimaginable. Internet is needed everywhere. Even if your work is not connected with it, you are not an active user of social networks and also do not use e-mail, this does not deprive your operating system of the need for updating, just like antivirus and many other programs. Although there are still people who do not use the Internet ... You do not browse this site using extrasensory capabilities? Enough lyrics, let's get started!

Internet connection

Integrated into the Windows 7 operating system is an excellent wizard for setting up access to the Internet. Find it easy: Start - Control Panel - Network and Sharing Center. Next, click on "Create a new connection."

And then we act on the situation. Select the required connection method and make the appropriate setting. We will not dwell on this in detail in the name of saving time; Such articles with step-by-step algorithms can be found on our website.The connectivity options are varied: broadband high-speed connections, prehistoric modem connections, virtual private connections, wireless, computer-to-computer direct connections, some other connections to the workplace, and so on, thanks to Microsoft, the list is far from complete. Some people are lucky with the connection, I am now talking about the users of popular 3G modems who have filled the market in abundance. There, the whole question comes down to installing one utility, which automates the entire configuration process.

How to configure network in Windows 7

A great feature is built into this operating system — the homegroup. Its purpose is to facilitate the exchange of files among network users. It is also worth noting security: thanks to verified data transfer algorithms, you can be sure that they will not be “beaten” and not lost. In addition, you can easily impose password protection on your resource, which will protect it from unauthorized access.

We configure a network in Windows 7. To begin with we connect all computers in a local area network. Physically, this is done by cable or wi-fi.If there are more than two computers and they are not burdened with Wi-Fi, you need an additional device - a switch (hub, switch in use). Your humble servant, having two computers, connects them with the help of a router (router) with cables. It makes no sense, this is equivalent to installing a tee in the socket, realizing that apart from a desk lamp, you will never turn on anything here. It was a demotivation on a personal example of lack of clarity, because the tee is a hundred times cheaper than a router. Having thought up the network architecture, let's move on to the algorithm:

  • Go to the Network and Sharing Center; then select the home group options;
  • Click "create";
  • Select the type of content of your computer, to which we provide access to users of the future home group;
  • We contemplate a randomly generated password, and better - we perform reverse digitization.

Each computer entering the subnet to the machine on which the home group is created can now join it.

It is worth noting the level of rights of users of the home network. They are the same for everyone, so for a more thorough setting you will have to work with each folder separately.

What does "ball" mean, and where did it come from?

Setting up the network in Windows 7 is easy. It's really hard to keep track of your list of shared files and folders. "Share" from the English "Share" - "share", in everyday life has a broader meaning, fumbling - to provide access to something, and not arbitrarily receive it, as it may seem at first glance.

Simplifying tracking your balls is easy. Sharte entire libraries! You know what it is ... right? Eh. Libraries, apart from stereotypes, are certain directories of files of the same type in Windows 7. You yourself specify specific paths for libraries where they collect data from, and later provide access to them, that is, you adjust your balls by simply removing folders from indexing by their libraries.

A remarkable feature of the home group, besides the ones listed above, is the ability to access the devices. Printers, multifunction devices, multimedia devices (projectors, for example) - this list is growing, because developers are constantly improving the Windows 7 system, expanding its functionality.

What can I say, two years ago, in order to open a drive on a remote computer entering a local network, you had to finish a technical college and be at least a good telnet programmer (which smacks of hacking and violating user rights) ...Today, for this there is a home group and a day on the "bombing" of the Google search engine. Yes, and those childish sincere emotions ala "yes this is magic!" it's hard to call ... Go for it!

After all, now you know how to set up a network in Windows 7!
