A growing legion of vendors and engineers is now looking for home networking. Home networking involves some good technology concepts and it may be a good business. Originally, "home-area networking" meant using Internet-based technology to connect two or more electronic devices, such as PCs, by wired or wireless methods. From a consumer's standpoint, home networking can provide a convenient way to extend Internet access to a second PC, easily send a file from a laptop to a printer or beam an Internet music service to a stereo. The ultimate home-network showcase was Time Warner Cable's "Home of the 21st Century" outside Orlando, Florida, an adjunct to its Full Service Network interactive-TV project in the 1990s.
