Will my laptop work on my home network and the school network?
If your home network consists of a broadband connection and a wireless router (802.11b,g compatible), the router needs to be set to assign Dynamic IP Addresses (DHCP). This will allow the student laptop access to a home network in a similar fashion to the school's network. A further configuration may be necessary based on equipment, vendor, software, or topography.
