Improved performance is the main difference of Windows 7 from Windows Vista. Windows 7 is also much faster than Windows Vista.

- Set-up the modem
- Place the router
- Add systems
Set-up the modem
Once you have all the tools, you'll need to set-up your modem and Internet connection. You also need to set-up the modem connection on your system. For this, you just need to follow the instructions given on each page. If you are using Digital Subscriber Line (DSL), connect your modem to a phone jack. If you are using cables, connect your modem to a cable jack. To set-up a Digital Subscriber Line (DSL) or cable connection, you need to create an account with an Internet Service Provider (ISP). For DSL, the ISP is typically a phone company. For cable, it is usually a cable TV provider. If the basic devices do not come with network accessories, then you need to buy them from a proper manufacturer.
Place the router
The next step that you need to check is positioning of the router. A router is an important device in a wireless network connection. You can connect the system to a proper network only of this router is adjusted correctly. You need to place the router as close to the center of your home as possible to increase the strength of the wireless signal throughout your home. You need to check the frequency of the router, and if this frequency is correct, then you can connect the system to the network.
If all these settings are configured successfully, then you need to connect the systems to the network. You can create a network between a Windows 7 system and a Windows Vista system. The file sharing feature of these two helps you to share files and folders.
