YOUR COMPLETE COMPUTER CONNECTION!!
When most people think about a network, they picture a massive server connected to hundreds of workstations in an office environment. This is known as a server based network. While this is a correct possible scenario, a home network is much simpler. Most home networks are setup as a peer-to-peer network. In this type of network, all the computers are complete stand-alone systems. In other words, they are equal to each other and can work perfectly well if the network is down or if other computers on the network are turned off. The computers in a peer-to-peer network simply share files and other resources. They are not dependent on each other in any way.
