- My internet provider is Comcast and I have a Modem/ Router and it is wireless. What is connected to my wifi is my cell phone, my mother's cell phone, my personal laptop, my television, a game station (wii), and a printer. I also have a regular computer, a house phone, and a Kindle.
- What I learned about networks which is also my "OMG" moment is that the internet is more difficult and complex than it seems. It has to go through so many systems and checkpoints to actually achieve one purpose. I was surprised at how much work goes into putting images, information, and etc onto your laptop and computer screen.
- What I would tell people about ISPs and Home Networks is that always understand and read all of the terms and conditions of the contract that asks you to "agree." Always know what you are agreeing to and know how your Home Network is set up and how it works.
On my home network, I have lots of things. It starts on the cloud and goes down through a fiber-optics cable to two modem-routers. One of them connect to a printer via ethernet, and the other one connects to everything else. Those are four smartphones, 2 iPads, 5 laptops, 1 desktop, and 1 TV, all from WiFi.
My OMG moment was when I saw that the world wide web didn’t equal the internet. I thought they were just two different ways to say the same thing. Also when I realized how many computers my family owns.
If you have your own home network, don’t get any routers from anyone “shady.”
