Twisted Pair Cables is a pair of wires that are twisted together to provide protection against crosstalk and noise that is generated by the adjacent pairs that forms a circuit to can transmit data. There are two basic types of twisted-pair cables, unshielded twisted pair, UTP, and shielded twisted pair, STP (Cisco, 2003). Coaxial Cables have a hollow outer cylindrical conductor that is surrounded by a single inner wire that is made of two conducting elements, copper and a copper braid or metallic foil. The copper conductor is surrounded by a layer of flexible insulation that has a woven copper braid, or metallic foil, that helps to reduce the amount of outside interference. And finally, a cable jacket covers the shield (Cisco, 2003). A fiber optic cable contains strands of glass fibers that is inside of an insulated casing that is designed for long distance and very high bandwidth, gigabit speed, network communications by using pulse of light to carry a signal (Scocco, 2006). Wireless signals are electromagnetic waves that travels through the air. To receive the signals from the access point the computer, or laptop, must have a wireless adapter card, or wireless NIC, installed. Wireless signals use portions of the RF spectrum to transmit voice, video, and data.

Satellite radio provides uninterrupted services to millions of listeners around the world without the need of changing channels. It uses the technology of satellites to deliver high quality audio signals that are broadcasted by communications satellites in digital form. The key components of a satellite radio infrastructure are satellites, ground repeaters and radio receivers. A radio receiver contains an electronic serial number, or a Radio ID that…...

...this facilitate the functions of the network, creating accounts and password and give them permission to access the network. One of the first decisions in computer environment design is the selection of the network type- a group of products that work together, even if they are manufactured by different companies. Products in the same group each follow the same networking rules, and you can count on them to work together properly. Today's most common network types include Ethernet, token ring, and ATM. Each of these three offers a viable alternative for supporting a LAN, each with its own costs and performance benefits. Ethernet stands as the prevailing technology and generally is the most appropriate choice for small business network, the network cards, cabling and network software you choose must be compatible with that group. Almost all small networks will use some type of Ethernet, the most inexpensive and flexible option. As a reflection of Ethernet's dominance, most business-class desktop computers come with Ethernet ports built directly onto the motherboard. Ethernet is associated with a set of networking rules called CSMA/CD (Carrier Sense Multiple Access with Collision Detection); these network rules describe how devices on the network communicate with one another. Ethernet is a broadcast network, in which all nodes have access to all datagrams or data packets. Each packet has an origin and destination address, and each computer should open the packet only......

...Networking When you have two or more computers connected to each other, you have a network. The purpose of a network is to enable the sharing of files and information between multiple systems. The Internet could be described as a global network of networks. Computer networks can be connected through cables, such as Ethernet cables or phone lines, or wirelessly, using wireless networking cards that send and receive data through the air. LAN - Local Area Network A LAN connects network devices over a relatively short distance. A networked office building, school, or home usually contains a single LAN, though sometimes one building will contain a few small LANs (perhaps one per room), and occasionally a LAN will span a group of nearby buildings. InTCP/IP networking, a LAN is often but not always implemented as a single IP subnet. In addition to operating in a limited space, LANs are also typically owned, controlled, and managed by a single person or organization. They also tend to use certain connectivity technologies, primarily Ethernet and Token Ring WAN - Wide Area Network As the term implies, a WAN spans a large physical distance. The Internet is the largest WAN, spanning the Earth. A WAN is a geographically-dispersed collection of LANs. A network device called a routerconnects LANs to a WAN. In IP networking, the router maintains both a LAN address and a WAN address. A WAN differs from a LAN in several important ways. Most WANs (like the Internet) are not owned by...

PROBLEMS TO RUN MORE THAN ONE PCs ON A WIRELESS LOCAL AREA NETWORK: If a girl wants to connect her four PCs with Wireless Local Area Network then she has to face several problems: LOW SPEED OF INTERNET: The first problem that she faces will be low speed of internet so she will face the problem in running her business that she will have great problem in opening her mail and receiving her important mails and documents regarding to her business. The interference of the signal is the major problem of the low speed of internet. Wireless network may interfere other radiations or network working in the house. Such as radio signals may interrupted by this networking due to which not only internet signals will be reduced but also radio signals will also be affected. And her computer may be infected by internet worm so the speed may slow. Speed of Internet also dependent to the service provider. As the connections are directly related with the speed. The greater the number of connections connected, greater will be distributions of the signals, hence more time will be consumed. So speed will be slowed down. It is much slower than the wired networks. She will be handled more carefully. LARGE NETWORK: Next problem she faces that due to its large network because as much as the network is large or wide it is not easy to handle it. As the Wireless Local Area Network is large and complex network......

...were narrowly used by important personnel like military bases so they can maintain connection with their traveling co-workers, keeping them safe, and giving them direction. These networks were not connected to the Internet, as we know it. They were just basic networks for the sake of communication. Networks became much more widely used in the 1990’s when the internet emerged to the masses. Now corporate offices and residential homes alike could start a network of their own so they can to connected to whatever they like. The importance of networking was realized very quickly, the number of networks rose at a rapid pace, and today there are billions of people connected to each other in different ways. Whether it be in a small corporate office connecting employees, or the network that connects a business to its manufacturer in China, its very obvious that the network changed the world, and helped it prosper. In this paper I will discuss every networking feature in the Windows operating system as well as its importance to the network. Importance Of A Network Now that it is common for a household to have multiple devices with the ability to connect, networks have become more important than ever. Computers are no longer used just for basic communication like e-mail. These days the daily usage of a computer seems like a life requirement. People are using them for work, entertainment, and shopping, all of which most likely need a network for access. Its almost easier to ask what......

...Networking in My Life and Career Angel Salvador Maldonado DeVry University Author Note This paper was prepared for CEIS-100 taught by Professor Reinaldo Fernandez. Course Project Week #: 2 Networking in My Life and Career A network is defined as a group of computers that are connected to share information. An NIC is a Network Interface Card. It is the physical component of a computer that allows a computer to connect to a network. Three types of media used for network connections are cable television coaxial, fiber optic cable and wireless connections. There have often been times when I have had to access my home wireless internet network and have not been able too. I start to troubleshoot by disconnecting and re connecting to the wireless network in the Open Network and Sharing Center. If that does not work, I check my wireless router to see if the lights on the router are green indicating that it is working properly. If there is a red or orange light on the router, I unplug the power source of the router and let it reset. This usually resolves the issue. My career goal is to become a Network System Administrator. That being said, I will be dealing with networks on a daily basis. A Network System Administrator is responsible for designing, installing, maintaining and upgrading networks in businesses of different sizes. I still have not taken any networking classes. I do know that by the time I obtain my Associates in Network Systems Administration I will have......

...Networking Networking There are many different types of topologies and this paper will discuss many advantages and disadvantages of them. Bus Topology In a bus topology, all the network devices are in a linear shape which acts as a common backbone. There is a single cable which functions as the go between for the devices that are attached to this connector. The device will send the messages to all of the devices attached to this shared cable. However, only the intended device will receive and accept the message being processed. An example of a bus topology is an Ethernet cord which is easy to install. One problem with a bus topology if the main source fails, all devices attached will become unresponsive. Star Topology Star topologies are the most popular forms of networking used today, in both homes and businesses. The star is the central device of the network and is located in most homes today, the router. In order for the star topology to work, it does require more cabling than the bus topology, but unlike the bus topology, if a computer in the star topology fails, all other computers are not affected. However, if the router fails, this will cause the network to shut down. Ring topology is no longer used as widely as in the past. Mesh Topology Mesh topology works with many different routes. The term mesh is exactly the way mesh topology works, sending messages out and it will pick the shortest and easiest route. Mesh topology can also only travel in one direction,...
