Hello,

I have a router in my home that I believe is secured by a wep password. I also have three computers that are connected to the router by wireless adapters. Is this set up considered to be a "network" or simpley a wireless connection?

Thank you.

The presence of computers connecting to a router definitely makes it a network. Same if it were connecting to a switch or hub, or even just two computers connected together with a crossover cable can technically be called a network.

In your case you have a wireless network made up of your various wireless clients which connect to a NAT router.

(for extra credit, this would be called a "star" network topology)
