How to set up a local network in XP

A local area network (LAN) connects computers within a limited geographical area. Although companies use LAN to connect computers to their own network, home users typically use it to connect to the Internet. Windows XP automatically detects a new LAN connection and then configures the local area network for you. However, it is important to have basic knowledge and know some troubleshooting processes to maintain your LAN and ensure the consistency of your network connection.
