What is a home network?

A home network is a group of devices – such as computers, game systems, printers and mobile devices – that connect to the internet and each other. Home networks connect in two ways:

  • A wired network, which connects devices like printers and scanners with cables
  • A wireless network, which connects devices like tablets and e-readers without cables
