Home and Small Office Networking Series
Home and Small Office Networking
Part 31: Disabling Your SSID Broadcast
Do you have more than one computer in your home or small office? If you do, you need a network! Using the network, you can share a single internet connection between all your computers, transfer files with a few mouse-clicks rather than a pile of floppy disks, and work wirelessly with your laptop from anywhere in the room.
You can also use your network for sharing printers, playing music, and vanquishing the enemy in multi-player online games.
Over the next few weeks we will bring you the entire 6.75 hours of Lynda.com's Home and Small Office Networking course. This will not simply be excerpts from the course, instead we will be providing the entire video-basd training course in a series of installments, with three installments per week, one each Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.
