Eric's Networking

Important Announcement -Updated 2017.11.30

This website will be shutting down in the future and will no longer be updated. I have started a new Wordpress website here. My plans is to come up with new content so much of the content here will not be carried over. If you have any suggestions I'll be glad to hear them. I want to thank everyone who has visited this website over the past several years.

Welcome to Eric Cross's Website!

I'm pretty amazed with Windows 7. Windows 7 includes new features that can make your network easier to set up, easier to use, and is more secure. Whether you are connecting to a small office or home network, Windows 7 makes connectivity easier than previous versions of Windows. With two or more computers in a small home or office, a network is a ideal solution and there are numerous ways of networking with Windows. There are lots of reasons to consider a network. Get the information you need here to set up a network.

Solve networking problems with the Network Diagnostics Tool

Networking problems? See how the Network Diagnostics tool for Windows Vista or Windows 7 can help you diagnose and correct many common networking issues. With Windows 10, type Network troubleshooter in the search box on the taskbar, and then select Identify and repair network problems from the list of results.

Wireless Networking

Windows Vista improves wireless network experience in number of ways. It now has enhanced support to keep you data secure with the latest wireless security protocols, including WPA2. Windows Vista can help avoid to connect to unwanted networks. You don't even need a wireless router or wireless access point. Windows Vista makes it easy to setup ad-hoc meeting networks.

Enhancements in the Windows Firewall

Microsoft Windows Vista include a new and enchanced version of the Windows Firewall. Like the current Windows Firewall in Windows XP Service Pack 2 (SP2), the Windows Firewall supports firewalling for both incoming and outgoing traffic. A network administrator can configure a set of rules to block traffic to specified ports or to specific addresses. For more information, please visit: The New Windows Firewall in Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008.
