With the development of network systems and technologies, the opportunity to combine a group of distributed computers in a network and call it the common working name. For example, workgroup. Such a network can be called local.
Why do we need such a network.
Local network, you can transfer any volume of the content between a network group. Music, videos, documents and other data can all be exchanged over the network and to offer so-called shared.
Configuration of such networks can be set. Our task – to reveal how to create a LAN connection in Windows.
First of all, I want to add a few words about this OS. Windows (Windows) is a modern multi-user system with graphical interface. The developer of the operating system is a major industrial Corporation (Microsoft founder bill gates).
Communication with PC via a dialog "window”. Hence the name. And connect to the Internet via LAN, and its setting will be considered in the context of software Windows 7.
How to create a LAN connection
Create and set up a local network in the system. We will consider the simplest variant when the cable need to connect just two PCs. This requires network cable type “crossover”. In this connection, one end of the cable is compressed in the back of the cable marking of the veins.
The Second phase – to make sure that the cable matches the connectors in your network cards. If so, you can go to the network configuration at the software level. If not – carefully read the instructions to your network card, what type of cable there can be connected, and cable marking.

Next, read the instructions on how to create a LAN connection. For a start, the same for versions of Windows creates a virtual working group, which by default is named Workgroup (the name if necessary, you can change its). This means that all computers in the local network is assigned a network name.
We will Now consider a special case, namely: how to create a LAN connection in windows 7. The list of actions to do this are listed below.
On the desktop or in the menu “start” locate the icon “My computer”.
Next, Sadashiva the right mouse button, in the popup select the option "properties". Now in the dialog box, select the tab “computer Name". Here it is assumed that you can enter or change the name for the local workgroup. The names, of course, for all the hosts must be the same to each of them could be recognised by others within a local network.
The Main thing in windows 7 is the ‘avtopodium" you just created the network without rebooting the PC. Sometimes a reboot is still required if automatic recognition of the local connection doesn't work.
The Next stage of configuration takes place via control panel. There select the label “Network and Internet", then find the ‘control Center’ in the tab “configure a new connection”. In the opened window interface will start the helper program. She will guide you sequentially through the steps of creating a standard connection that will allow you to solve the question of how to create a connection on a local network.
The Algorithm for generating IP addresses in the local network space.
The Last configuration step – to assign each PC a unique numerical address-the IP address. To assign commonly used the following data: addresses start consistently with a value of 192.168.0.1, then the last digit on each new host is incremented by one, i.e., the address of the second PC is 192.168.0.2, the third - 0.3, etc. should Also form a network mask, by default, its value is 255.255.255.0.
Thus, we considered the option of creating a local network using windows 7 and the assignment of computers on the network unique IP to uniquely identify each host.
