Question

Home Network??? Is that what I'm looking for?

Hi Forum.
I have three computers around the house. All are modern Win7 PCs with wifi and blutooth. I bought all my TVs right before the smart set came out. so rather than buy new TV's I bought cheap computers to use as media players and web surfers.
So I want to be able to wirelessly retrieve files and stream media from the computer in my den to the computer in my bedroom or vise versa. I'm pretty sure it's possible. In networks tab there's a password and checkboxes of what to share. But I don't see a set-up instruction, or anything on the web. I'm Googling "home Network". What else would it be called? All I'm finding are articles on how to connect a laptop or wireless printer to the router.
Thanks in advance....Rocco.

That's the thing.

I've yet to find this in condensed form. On top of that what each person wants to do may change.

So there are PLENTY of web pages and YouTubes about networking, not one may be exactly what you want. For that you learn networking then design and implement what you want.
