In my household I have four computers; I have just upgraded my computers to the latest operating system and software. I need to set up a wireless network with capabilities of sharing files and connecting to printers while also making sure the software is configured correctly and that I have all the correct security measures in place to protect against all outside threats to my network. On all my systems I am currently running the Windows 7 Ultimate. To first set up my wireless home network safely and securely, I must make sure I first have all of the necessary components. To start I will start by calling my internet service provider and adding the Internet to my current plan. With the service from my ISP on and running, I can begin to start the process. First I start by connecting my internet modem to the cable that runs from the wall that provides the internet signal, next I have to connect my modem by adding the power cable and connecting it to a surge protector. Once I have completed this step, I move on to my wireless router. I connect my wireless router to my modem by connecting the blue Ethernet cable that runs from the modem to the router. Then once I have all green lights on my modem, and I know that it is actually receiving a signal from the ISP. I continue to connect my wireless router to my surge protector. Once my wireless router is connected successfully to my modem and the router is showing all green lights the same as the modem, I know that my wireless signal is now being broadcast all over my house. Now that I know all my hardware to receive and broadcast a signal is working correctly. I begin to work on my computer to make sure that I am able to connect to the router which in return is connected to the modem. First I make sure I have all the necessary wireless adapters connected to my computer so I will be able to get online. Once I make sure the network adapters are installed correctly with the correct drivers I can move onto the next task. I open up my network and settings device on my computer and make sure that I am able to connect to the wireless network. Once I am connected I want to make sure I am able to access the internet. I open up a webpage on the internet and once it is loaded I know I am successfully running on the internet. Once I am successfully connected to the Internet, I want to make sure my wireless home network is safe and secure so I can do some shopping online. I go to my internet browser and type in a IP address that will bring me to my routers login page through my browser. Once I am on the correct page I can move to make sure that all my default administrator usernames and passwords are changed to a more complicated name. Once all my usernames and passwords are changed from default settings into something that is more complicated I go into the router to make sure the WPA/WEP Encryption is on and working to make my network passwords much more complicated and harder to get in. After I am done changing to first two settings to beef up my network defenses I go into the default SSID which is my network name to change it, not to much of a security feature but at least it helps maybe a…
• A subnet mask defines how many bits are used for the network address and how many for the host address.
• Every machine on the same physical network sees all the data packets sent out on the network. As the number of computers on a network grows, network traffic will grow many fold, bringing down performance drastically
• First, an IP address is a 32-bit number expressed in binary. A subnet mask in compared to the 32-bit IP address – it is also 32-bits long. Anywhere where there is the number…
this assignment sheet, Section letter, and staple it on top of your printouts. e-Print is recommended. slide 7 Which is the best network option peer-to-peer or client/server for a new small business with only four computers (one of which has a printer connected to it) that is operating under a very tight budget Why Peer- to peer LAN is a common on small local area networks, maybe 10 or fewer personal computers including printer/ scanner. Benefits or peer-to-peer allows data to be shared easily, easy…
Introduction:- A system designed to prevent unauthorized access to or from a private network. Firewalls can be
implemented in both hardware and software, or a combination of both. Firewalls are frequently used to prevent unauthorized
Internet users from accessing private networks connected to the Internet, especially intranets. All messages entering or
leaving the intranet pass through the firewall, which examines each message and blocks those that do not meet the specified…
is to determine the procedure taken to design a network
communication system with given requirements needs and apply it on simulated software
called Packet Tracer 6.0.1. It was necessary to produce a network design and allocate at 2000
ip addresses for R1 (London), 800 Ip addresses for R2 (Manchester), and 500 ip addresses for
R3 (Birmingham) and to Use the lowest address for all three routers.
Using the /22 addresses from the remaining address space for the serial links between the
What are the parts of TCP/IP and what do they do? Who is the primary user of TCP/IP?
TCP performs packetizing: breaking the data into smaller packets, numbering them, ensuring each packet is reliably delivered, and putting them in the proper order at the destination. IP performsrouting and addressing. IP software is used at each of the intervening computers through which themessage passes; it is IP that routes the message to the final destination. The TCP software onlyneeds to be active…
IP Address Schema
A private network will be planned and designed for this particular company and with this type of network planning, private IP addresses will be put in place to prevent public routing. The purpose of a private IP addressing scheme is to allow an organization to issue their devices IP addresses from a private network range. By using a private address scheme, it will allow this company to use a small portion of public IP addresses and with these limits; all network devices can…
freely. It is my pleasure to give back to the community by making other
new users knowledgeable instead of ripping them off.
II. What is VICIdial?
VICIdial is a set of scripts that are designed to interact with the
Asterisk Open-Source IP PBX Phone System to make it function as an
inbound / outbound call center solution.
Scripts are made up of PERL and PHP. It uses MySQL as its
database server, Apache / Httpd Server for its front end web interface,
and Linux as its operating system…
late 1960s. IP addresses and subnets were not developed at the same time, but both of which were implemented during the 1980s. However, it was not until the early 1990s when CIDR (Classless Interdomain Routing) was introduced as a means to help segregate networks into smaller networks thus minimizing the IP address pool of the world which helped keep the “World Wide Web” alive today. When networking first began, there were no protocols in place for the assigning and maintaining of IP addresses. As…
the two most important network-layer functions in a datagram network? What are the three most important network-layer functions in a virtual-circuit network?
--> Three network- layer :: Datagram-based network layer, forwarding, routing. Additional function of VC-based network layer: call setup.
* What is the difference between routing and forwarding?
--> Both of these are used in the network layer for the purpose of data sending on different paths.In the forwarding network layer function, the data…
