Welcome to the World’s Largest Network – The Internet
The Internet is a big collection of computers linked by cables. Some links are as small as your phone line. Some are huge undersea cables, capable of carrying thousands of telephone calls and data “conversations” simultaneously. The Internet is just a huge computer network.
Computer networks were first created about 50 years ago. At first they were found in government installations and laboratories. Next they made their way to college campuses where they were the domain of information scientists in lab coats.
Today network technology is built into practically every computer sold. With about $100 in extra hardware, a few hours of time and a trained person, you can have a computer network in your home. If you have more than one computer in your home or office, there are many reasons to network your computers.
The posts below will answer many of the common networking questions.

Networks vary in size: some are within a single office, others span the globe. There are various network technologies, the most common being Ethernet […]
Overview When connecting network equipment together, there are some network rules which you must follow. These refer to: The number of hubs (repeaters) that can be connected together. The length of cabling that is used. The type of cabling that is used. The rules are similar for both Ethernet and Fast Ethernet. If you are […]
Hubs and switches are different types of network equipment that connect devices. They differ in the way that they pass on the network traffic that they receive. Hubs The term ‘hub’ is sometimes used to refer to any piece of network equipment that connects PCs together, but it actually refers to a multi-port repeater. This […]
Overview Twisted pair cables and coaxial cables are different types of cable that can be used to connect the equipment when creating the network. Twisted pair cable is easier to use. Coaxial Cabling Coaxial cabling was used in Ethernet networks before twisted pair cabling. A coaxial network is created by joining sections of coaxial cable […]
Overview Networks provide the connections and features that are required now, while remaining flexible for growth in the future. There are three common reasons for expanding and upgrading the network: More ports are required More bandwidth is required Peer-to-peer networking has become complicated Note: When adding equipment to the network, you must be aware of […]
