switching back to the first system. Let's go into shared and we can already tell by looking at the thumbnail, that the changes that I made from the other system have been applied. Summary 9:53-10:04 That's it for this demonstration. In this demo, we talked about HomeGroups. We first talked about how to create a HomeGroup, we then looked at how to join another system to that HomeGroup and then we talked about how to share information within the HomeGroup. A homegroup is a simple way of sharing resources and managing authentication to resources on a home network. The homegroup: Is created when a network interface is identified as a Home location and if another homegroup is not already present on the local area network (LAN). Is displayed as a separate node in the Libraries container in Windows Explorer: o Each resource is displayed by username and computer name. o Each resource is controlled on a per-user basis, allowing different users to share different resources to the homegroup. Be aware of the following when working with a homegroup utility: Use the HomeGroup utility in the Control Panel to: o Create, join, or leave a homegroup. o Manage shared libraries. o Change or retrieve the homegroup password. When creating a homegroup, a default password is provided. Use this password to connect other computers to the homegroup. To join to a homegroup from a computer running any edition of Windows 7: o Identify the network connection as a Home location. o Click Join Now from the homegroup prompt in the Taskbar, or click Join Now within the homegroup utility from the Control Panel. o Select which types of libraries to share. o Provide the homegroup password.

Wired Network Troubleshooting 0:00-0:09 In this lesson, we're going to review several wired networking issues that you may run into as a PC technician. Poor Connectivity 0:10-0:20 Let's begin by talking about poor network connectivity. Now, poor connectivity could cause either no connectivity at all, or you might end up with intermittent network connectivity. Simple Causes of Poor Connectivity 0:21-0:59 When troubleshooting poor connectivity, you should first check the simple causes before you start trying to look into more complex issues, for example, look for unplugged cables on the computer or maybe on the wall jack, or on the network switch, it's really not uncommon for cables to becomeaccidentally unplugged as employees go about their daily tasks. Also verify that your network infrastructure equipment is powered on and responding, including your network switches, your routers, your DHCP servers and your DNS server. Here's the issue, if one of these devices goes

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
