Lab 1 Network
Transcript of Lab 1 Network
Simply, more than one computer interconnected through a communication
medium for information interchange is called a computer network.
LAN - Local Area Networks
MAN - Metropolitan Area Networks
WAN - Wide Area Networks
Types of computer networks
1- Network Interface Card (NIC)
1- Physical topology
the layout of cabling, the locations of nodes, and the interconnections between the nodes and the cabling.
2- Logical topology
- The way that the data passes through the network from one device to the next.
-The logical topologies are generally determined by network protocols.
1- shared media topology
2- token-based topology
6- Ethernet cable
A NIC will allow a computer to send and receive electrical or radio signals in a manner that other computers can understand. Most modern computers come with Ethernet NICs installed by default.
In order to connect more than two computers together
A switch is a device that distributes packets, or blocks of data, between computers in a network
A router is a device that joins two different networks together.
A modem is a device that allows you to connect to your Internet service provider and browse the Internet.
To set up a wired network, Ethernet cables are needed that allow the transmission of data from one networked device to another.
Every Network includes:
-- At least two computers Server or Client workstation.
--Networking Interface Card's (NIC)
-- A connection medium, usually a wire or cable, although wireless communication between networked computers and peripherals is also possible.
-- Network Operating system software, such as Microsoft Windows NT or 2000, Novell NetWare, Unix and Linux.
A node is anything that is connected to the network. While a node is typically a computer, it can also be something like a printer or CD-ROM tower.
