    Welcome to the forum. If your running a router and all the pc connect to it you have a network nothing else needed. What do you want to do with the network

    Hello Samuria

    I like to have control over all the other computers, including trouble shooting them via remote, also I need to check the history of what the kids are watching. Do I need to buy a network switch ?


    thanks

    What do you mean by control of other PC's? If everyone connect to the internet via a router you don't need any other hardware you can use remote desktop built into Windows to remote to other PC's. To view history you need to login as the kids it's hard to do it another way. You could set up a free proxy server with that you could see what's being used on the net in real time with logs
