Thanks, Peg

The way I see it, you could use a network... but you need a few parts first... LOL, like a router would be nice. hehehe!!!
I can make the Cat5e cabling, but it's just as cheap to buy it.
LOL....  :) Peg

10 Tips for maintaining a home network
from Microsoft!!

http://www.microsoft.com/athome/moredone/healthynetwork.mspx

Other thoughts from Lockergnome:

I thought number 10 was different since it usually doesn’t make any lists I have seen before. It is described as:

You need to do more than secure your operating system. You also need to secure your hardware. This includes but is not limited to

• Keeping pets off the PC towers, keyboards, routers, modems, and other hardware.
• Avoiding smoking around computer equipment.
• Repairing or replacing frayed wires and cables, including power cords.
• Making sure surge protectors are installed and working.
• Making sure cables are not crimped, or under chair or desk legs.
• Making sure all equipment has adequate air flow.
• Avoiding shut downs and reboots (put the computer to sleep instead using Power Settings).
• Using canned air twice a year to blow dust from inside and around computer towers. (and other electronics)
• Verifying wireless access points are properly placed.
• Verifying power outlets have not become overloaded.
How are you?  I'm great!  Glad to see you! Hope we meet again!
