While many families have PCs and broadband modems, connecting them together as a network, especially if they are in different rooms, is challenging. The problems multiply as consumer electronics devices become enabled for broadband and their networking needs diverge. The authors discuss the evolving situation in the home, user needs for networking, and the growing set of problems faced by users. The article describes major home networking approaches and raises some of the questions to be considered in designing home networks for the future.
