Creating a Simple LAN Computer Network

When YOU at home has more than one computer, and each computer wants to connect with each OTHER to get sharing data, printers, internet connection sharing etc, we can do to make your computer network LAN (Local Area Network) simple ..

this time we use a cable connection that is using a data cable UTP (unshielded twisted pair), which is standard LAN cable for network connection.
Computers are used at present are already equipped with LAN Card or also known as NIC (Network Interface Controller), or Ethernet Card.

If the number of computers that will be connected only two, we just simply providing a single UTP cable with a length according to the distance between the computer that at both ends of the cord that has been fitted with RJ-45 connector (standard connector for UTP LAN cable) and with the configuration Cross / cross.

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

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

Configuring the IP address (Internet Protocol / TCP IP)
To be able to communicate with each other, respectively - each computer must be given the IP address

• Go to Network Connections (Start -> Control Panel -> Network Connection)
• Select / double-click Local Area Connection
• Double click on Internet Protocol (TCP / IP)
• Click Use the Following IP address, then fill in the IP address and Subnet Mask
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 of komputer1 to komputer2:
• In Komputer1: Click Start -> Click Run -> type CMD -> click OK, then the Command Prompt window will appear
• Type in ping hit enter
Reply from komputer2 there should be
• Perform the same command to find a connection to another computer.
