Came onto the scene at about the same time as my friend Hank was teaching me the basics of DOS (still comes in handy occasionally). My first successful home network setup was using Windows for Workgroups (3.11). Three machines connected with thin Ethernet cable and BNC connectors – one break and they all go down. How pleased with myself I was. Now, setting up a home network is about as unusual as building an Ikea flatpack. Tends to use wi-fi though – a technology as reliable as a Trabant running on moonshine.
