Although Windows XP's network configuration options are pretty straightforward, you usually can't get all of the particulars of a machine's network connectivity at a glance. In Windows Vista though, Microsoft has made it a lot easier to quickly gather information about how a workstation is connected to a network through a new component called the Network Center. In this article I will show you what the Network Center is and how it may eventually make your life easier.
