This module was solely based around
computer networks and provided some benefits of using networks. This assignment
is asking for a peer to peer network consisting of a network based printer and
six desktop computers. My network has been developed for a small business room
platform with Verizon. I used a program called gliffy to create my network
diagram. Gliffy is a very user-friendly program that provides simple diagrams
to create your own depicted images.
I linked up 6 desktop computers, a
network printer, and a wireless router in a star topology. The business I’m
depicting uses these computers for telemarketing. I based my set up through a
basic computer setup. I wanted to make sure the employees could keep access to
their phone networks. For that to be possible, I installed a wireless router. It
begins with an ISP access from Hargray internet provider. After I am allotted
access to the internet, I can begin to route my internet service for the Verizon
a modem to the internet with a coaxial cable and started to route my internet.
I began first installing my non-wireless router to my modem with an Ethernet
cable. I routed 6 nodes with Ethernet cables to my non-wireless router. I have
my wireless router hooked up for internet connection. The internet connection
is via Hargray internet cable.
many benefits to being connected to a network. This companies’ benefit to be on
a network would be to save cost. Using a network allows users to communicate
with other nodes while sharing resources such as printers and storage space. No
single computer in this system is occupying higher privileges than the other
this results in our system being labeled as a peer to peer network.
