I’ve never taken a formal class on the finer points of networking, but I have managed to learn enough to set up a home network. But it was not the easiest process, and I’m sure I’m not the only one who has encountered difficulty with this project. So when I found a program that promised to act as a central point to setup, manage and even fix my network, I thought I would check it out. So this week, I’ll be sharing with you: Network Magic v4.0
Installation is very quick, due to minimal options. Just agree to the license, choose a program folder, and the files are copied. Finishing will automatically launch the application and its wizard. Note that Network Magic will add two desktop icons, a system tray icon and an entry in the Start Menu.
While the convenient in-program file sharing expires in the free version, the other features still make Network Magic on a compelling package for anyone new to networking. By breaking down your devices and helping fix problems, Network Magic can save a networking novice from the complexity and confusion that networking can bring on. Check it out on www.networkmagic.com
