Home Networking--Part 3 of 6
Many people mistakenly believe that phone line-based home networking products will somehow disrupt their phone service. Not so--these products use a higher frequency than voice, so your computers will communicate "behind the scenes" over your phone line even when you are making or receiving calls. You can answer a telephone call, have a conversation, and hang up--all while transferring files between your home PCs over the same line. And you can't hear any type of computer noise in the background when you pick up your telephone handset.
