NEW YORK -- More than 17 million U.S. households are interested in networking their personal computers, printers and other devices so household members can share information and Internet access, a study released Monday by the research firm Yankee Group said.

About 37 percent of households with PCs, and 50 percent of households with more than one PC, liked the idea of linking information products - though the concept is new and not many products are widely available to do so.
