Friday, April 09, 2010 10:42 PMIs there any difference between a home and work network? Or are they the same settings and just there for our own classification purposes?

A homegroup and a workgroup?
Very little difference, if any. But a homegroup will only work with
Windows 7 computers, while a workgroup will work with almost any.
I recommend the workgroup, since it's more versatile.

thanks. So looks like the only difference between a home network and a work network is just being able to use a homegroup.
