Is there a difference between a work network and a home network?

    Question

  • Is 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.
