Home Networking--Part 4 of 6
Expect to spend between $80 to $180 per PC when you connect several in your home. The price range depends on whether you use wireless (more expensive) or phone line-based (less expensive) technology. You'll also spend a little more for the PC Card adapters for adding notebook computers into your home network.
With home networks, it's best to start with just two PCs. All home networking solutions offer two-PC kits that include everything you need to connect two systems. After you've gotten through the installation and have seen what your home network can accomplish, you can always add more PCs to your network down the road. All home networking solutions also offer single-PC kits so that you can add just one desktop or notebook to your home LAN.
