1. My internet is connected to my modem through my ether-net cable (with my ISP Verizon Fios) which is connected to my router. All the devices that are connected to my internet connection are: three laptops, three smartphones, one printer, one cable box, and one Roku device. These are all connected wireless.

2. I have learned that many things connect to one another. I realized that I took my home network for granted because of how easily I can search a question and in a second I will get an answer. Now that I have learned about this, I understand the hard working process for us to be able to have this fast connection. An "OMG" moment that I had is how much my internet connection costs because I did not think it would be that expensive. 

3. If people needed to know about having an ISP/Home Network, I would tell them to be aware of all of the devices that are on the network. Also, to pay attention to the price and choose a good ISP carrier. The last thing I would tell them is when they have a problem and get help from someone, to understand what the person is fixing. This is believe they could tell you that you have to pay $500 for a repair that only costs $5.

My home network is made up of a Xbox, a nook color, an I pad,  two Chromebooks  a desktop computer wired in and a laptop that is wired in.  The Internet get sent though from a motem router combination sending WiFi thought my house. They get it from the coax cable coming up and though the wall.  You have a coax cable if you have Comcast internet.  Also the router is connected to the laptop and desktop through the Cat-5 cable.

  1. On my home network me and my family have two tablets, five phones, two computers, a playstation, and a wii.
  2. I learned how much we pay for internet I was surprise that it was nearly five dollars a year.
  3. The prices may vary greatly. you may only pay ten dollars a month for your internet. Other may pay a hundred dollars a month. Also different ISP's may work better than other.

  1. There are several devices connected onto my home network. There are several gaming systems including a Ps4, Ps3, and an Xbox 360. There are also 4 Iphones connected to my home network. There are also 2 Laptops and 2 Tablets.
  2. Learning about networks was very interesting. I really enjoyed going back into the origins of networking and examining how this massive internet came to be. My OMG moment was when I learned that data can be broken up into smaller packets and come back together at its destination.
  3. I would inform them about internet safety concerns, and just general ways to keep your information secure.

My home network has two home phones, three televisions, two laptops and two mobile phones. At one point I followed my coax cable around my house and I never knew how far it actually went until now. I would tell everyone that they should be cautious with what they share on the internet because you never know who could be watching.

1. my family's tablet, computer, laptops, phones, and printer are all connected to my internet.

2. I never realized just how much power your ISP has over your internet. Honestly, It's kinda terrifying.

3.I would tell them to be careful on what they look up, do, or post online. It can be accessed by almost anyone and what you do now can affect you 10, 20, 30 years from now. If thats not a good incentive, then i don't know what is.

In my home network I have two Roku boxes, Two tablets, Three phones, a Laptop and a desktop computer. These things are split between my dad, mom and myself. They are used for work, classwork/ homework, and entertainment purposes ( movies, Youtube, Netflix, etc.) I learned that you have an IP address that basically leaves a fingerprint on each site you go on. You also can be watched by you internet service provider as far as websites you go on. The OMG moment I had would have to be finding out that your IP address is what the police and stuff can use to look at what you do online. I would tell people when having a home network, be careful what you do and go on because no matter what you do, it can still be found. Even if you delete your browser history!

  1. explain your L.A.N. Local Area Network - all the devices on your internet connection.
  2. reflect on what you learned about networks, did you have an OMG moment that you learned something new and interesting? if now write about what you learned.
  3. What would you tell other people that they need to know about having an ISP/Home network?
1. My I.S.P is Verizon fios, in my house we own 4 phones, a tablet, two desktops, a printer, and a t.v. When all of these devices are running my internet tends to slow down.  
2.The video that we watched that explained the distance packets travel in a couple seconds blows my mind. I learned that there are these huge server rooms that verify and transmit all the packets and requests that people send via their electronic device.
3.I would say that it certainly helps you to understand how your internet functions. Knowing these things gives you a sense of how you can fix and understand your internet.

Did you ever wonder how the magic of the internet happens? For the past couple of weeks, Ms. Hull has been teaching us how. What we discovered is that the internet comes into our house through a bunch of wires known as ethernet cables! The process goes by my ISP, Verizon FiOS sending the internet into my house! Verizon FiOS hooked the fiber-to-ethernet cable into a modem-router combination. The modem connects our household to the internet and sends packets into the internet. The router is what connects that modem to our internet by a wireless (Wi-Fi) signal! That Wi-Fi signal powers all electronic devices that connect to the internet in our house, such as two desktop computers, one laptop, two smartphones, a printer, and a PlayStation 3!

I didn't really know how much my internet connection cost, so that was my OMG moment throughout this unit! I also didn't know how your ISP, which in my case is, Verizon FiOS controls how quickly you receive your webpage. It literally costs my household about $120 per month to run all of my devices! Now, I challenge you to learn how your home network works. Specifically, I want you to know about what brings your internet into your house. I also want you to know how much it costs!

My local area network is Verizon. All the devices on my internet connection are phones, laptops , a tablet etc.
What I learned about networks is that how every device in your home is connected.
What I would tell other people that they need to know about having a home network is that they internet is not as simple as it seems

On my L.A.N., I have six phones, three iPads, one Wii U, three laptops, a wireless printer, a Mac Desktop, and a smart TV. Everything connects wirelessly from my modem/router, which is connected to a coex cable. My ISP is Comcast Xfinity. They bring the internet into my home.

What I learned about networks was that everything on internet is connected. Also, I learned about packages. I think an OMG moment for me was learning about how packages work. They are broken apart and sent all over the world. Then, they are put back together where they are supposed to go. 

I would tell people who have a home network and ISP to learn about how the internet works. They should know what they are paying for.

On my L.A.N I have a pc connected by ethernet, 4 laptops, an Xbox, 2 ipads, 4 iphones, and a chrome-cast.  In the process of this I also moved my router and modem from the first floor to my room and also learned a lot about my network.  Primarily I learned in class, and in my tampering how the cable systems actually work.  I was surprised to discover that the cable we use for cable has to be plugged into the modem.  I would tell other people to understand what each wire does that goes in and out of your router and modem.  Also if you have comcast, call them every two months or so to prevent them from screwing you over (sometimes they randomly change your bill.

2) My home network consist of a printer, a desktop, three laptops and four cellphones. Of those devices only the desktop is connected by wire.
3) I've learned that the internet doesn't just come out of nowhere. There's a process, a web of systems, that it has to go through. I had an OMG moment when i learned how much Xfinity cost. 
4) I would tell others that it's important to know about your homework so that if something happens you'll know how to react and what to do

Home Network, Powers

  1. explain your L.A.N. Local Area Network - all the devices on your internet connection: I have at least 13 wireless devices and 3 wired in. This list includes 3 phones, 4 kindles, 5 laptops, one tablet, a TV, printer, and desktop computer. My tenants also have devices on the network like phones and laptops but I do not know how many.

  2. reflect on what you learned about networks, did you have an OMG moment that you learned something new and interesting? if now write about what you learned: I was very surprised when you told me I had an outdated phone cord bringing internet into my house. Learning about how packets were transported all over the world in a couple of seconds for web pages was really new for me as well.

  3. what would you tell other people that they need to know about having an ISP/Home network: Different cords bring internet into your home based on your ISP. Certain networks prevent you from going on high bandwidth sites or going on these sites will slow down your internet. Your ISP can see what you do on the network.

My home network starts off with a modem being connected to a router. The router then connects all of the following devices through Wifi, a desktop computer, 2 laptops, 3 phones, an I-Pad, an I-Pod, and a X-Box 360. An OMG moment I had while learning about networks is that your ISP can see whatever you've done on the internet and disclose that info if needed to. When having an ISP you should obviously remember to pay your bill on time or you won't have any internet, and second off all fast internet isn't cheap so get ready to be paying a good amount of money every month.

On my home network, I have 2 laptops, 1 PlayStation 3, 3 tablets, 2 iPhones, 1 printer, 1 SmartTV, 1 Roku Streaming Device, and 2 DirecTV cable boxes. These are all connected wirelessly to my modem/router that is connected to our Ethernet Cable (all provided by our ISP, Comcast) which brings Internet into our home.
I never really knew a lot about the actual internet itself and how the packages work and such. I thought that was really interesting. I mean, it wasn't exactly an "OMG" moment per se, but it was a moment where I learned something completely new.

I would tell other people to really do their research and ask their ISP plenty of questions so that they know that they are getting what they pay for when they pay for their internet at home.

The coax cable comes in through the coax splitter , and then the coax wire goes through the modem going into the router. Another coax wire that is running through the coax splitter goes into the living room into the cable box and then the TV. The second coax wire goes through my parents room through the cable box and into the TV. Lastly my room , the last coax wire goes through the cable box and into the TV.

Colors Are For Everyone

Our counter message to gender bias addresses the issue of labeling colors with a gender. This is unfair because colors should be free for everyone to enjoy, without having to worry about anything gender related.
