%X Issues concerning Home networks are discussed. The two main
areas are the physical connections used and the
communications protocols required. Of the physical
connections available the IEEE\-1355 family is addressed in
particular. The software protocol proposed consists of
embedding device drivers within the device itself. The
device uploads its driver to one or many intelligent units.
This approach is achieved here by using Java bytecode. It is
argued that this mechanism eliminates the need for a
pre\-determined all\-encompassing protocol, provides a
simple and future\-proof system and ensures that home
networks can be quite literally plug and play.
