HP Notebook PCs - Creating a Wireless Home Network (Windows Vista)

A wireless home network can be set up for use by a computer with any Windows operating system(OS). The tasks needed to connect a computer to the new network are different for each OS and are covered in other documents listed in the See also section.
This document provides a quick overview of how to setup a wireless network for your home. Most home networks are set up to allow multiple computer to share files and access the internet, however a network can be setup without internet access. To access the internet, you will need to establish service with an internet service provider (ISP). Most telephone and cable providers offer a high-speed DSL or cable connection. Some companies now offer a wireless 3G or 4G broadband connection that allow access to the internet without setting up a home network.
The big advantage of using a home network is security. You control access to the network by establishing passwords and encryption settings. A home network also allows you to share resources such as printers, file storage, and connections to wireless capable TVs and game consoles.
Once the network is set up, see the See also section at the end of this document for links to documents on connecting a computer to the network for the first time, and troubleshooting a lost network connection.
