The first thing what you do when you setup your Windows Home Server is start connecting other computers in your network. Having Windows Home Server in your network can be good from much reason and the main reason I use it is for backups. Having Windows Home Server without any computers connected in its network is pointless so that’s why I will show you how to connect a computer with Windows 7 operating system.
