Home Networking--Part 2 of 6
So far the two most effective communication technologies in home networking products remain phone line and wireless. Your choice really depends on the layout of your home. If you have few walls (or floors) between the computers you want to connect, then wireless is probably your best bet. Wireless home networking solutions give you the flexibility and freedom to move about the room, especially with a notebook computer you can run off a battery. However, if your computers are far apart, you should check into phone line-based networking gear. In a phone line-based scenario, it doesn't matter how far apart the computers are, as long as each has access to your phone line via wall jacks.
