How to create a LAN

How to create a LAN - When my friend at home has more than one computer, and each computer connected to each other in order to share data, printers, Internet connection sharing, etc., we could do with a computer network LAN (Local Area Network) simple ..

the post, this time we use a cable connection that is using a data cable UTP (unshielded twisted pair), which is standard cable to the LAN network connection.
Computers are currently used in general has been equipped with a LAN Card or also known as NIC (Network Interface Controller), or Ethernet Card.

• If the number of computers that will connect only two, we are only enough to provide one with a length of UTP cable according to the distance between the computer at both ends of the cord has been fitted with RJ-45 connector (standard connector for UTP LAN cable) to the configuration Cross / cross.

• If the number of computers that will connect more than 2 pieces, then we must add a device called Switch or Hub. At this time the price of a switch to standard housing is very affordable.
Of each - each computer connected to the switch using UTP cable with RJ-45 connectors on both ends with a configuration Straight / straight.

Installation of connectors on UTP cable can be made yourself, but to simply stay mate just go to a computer store that also provides network equipment, and living told to buy a pair UTP cable connector all the configuration of cross / cross to connect the computer to the computer (two computers) , or straight / straight to connect more than 2 computer / use switch.

For example,
komputer1 IP Address:
komputer2 IP Address:
komputer3 IP Address:
komputer4 IP Address:
etc. ..
Must be the same Subnet Mask:

To determine success or failure of connection do the ping command from one computer to another computer
Example from komputer1 to komputer2:
