Network access can be as basic as connecting your tablet PC to another computer that has a network card, using a crossover cable, or connecting to a company network.
Network access, with the correct access rights, can give you access to almost any resource which is available on a network. This includes:
- CD access.
- Software installation.
- Driver downloads.
- Freeware and Shareware programs.
- Files sent by email.
- Windows updates.
- Antivirus updates.
Many of these may be available from the Internet via the network, which is likely to have a faster download time than a dialup Internet connection.
