    I must start by admitting my ignorance about networks, but I see that my PC is suing something called a "Local Area Connection", while both my mobile 'phone and my Kindle reader are successfully using a network connection which involves a password. While this is working satisfactorily, should I rather be using one standard network connection which encompasses the three ? If there is no benefit in this, so be it, but the question is just for my own information.

    You are using the same network except your computer is connected with an Ethernet cable and your mobile devices are connected by wireless. This is a completely normal setup and nothing needs to be changed.
