My local area network is Comcast, we have a coax cable connecting the internet to our house. ​I have a modem/router. The items on my home network are my laptop, my mom's laptop, and the Wii. I learned a lot about networks, like what cable connects the internet to my house, and I learned about all of the different things connect to my modem/router. I also learned the differance between the modem/router and just the modem. I would like to tell people to figure out what type of chord they have, because it does make a difference to how your internet may work.

My Home Network (Siani Davis)

Home Network, Siani Davis


Let me tell you about my home network, it all starts with the internet. My internet server is Verizon Fios. The service travels through a fiber optic cable which is located in my brother’s bedroom. The fiber optic cable also connects to my modem router. The devices that are connected to my network are 4 tablets, 4 cell phones, 1 computer, 3 laptops, my printer and xbox.

Something I learned about home networks in general is that every home network has a different cable. For example, Verizon Fios uses a fiber optic cable while Comcast uses some other cable.


The only thing that is mind blowing to me about the internet is that whatever you decide to post or type is never yours. Even if you delete something, someone can always find it. It is such a bummer that you have to constantly be careful and proof-read what you write or post because it can cause many dangerous issues. It can also possibly create viruses.

My home network consist of the Internet which is provided by Verizon. I have a modem router that is connected to a telephone wire which runs across my living room. Connected to my home network is: my parents' phones, my phone, the TV, the printer, my parents' laptop, my laptop, my chromebook. Also, the printer is connected to the Internet because it is wireless. I never really paid attention to what was connected to my Internet because it never really concerned me, but I guess it's good to be informed.

My home network is very fast. It works very well but sometimes comcast goes down. I have many things connected to my home network such as 7 computers 2 ipads and 4 iphones. I did not learn much about home networks. I learned that I have a coax cable. If your home network stops working I turn off my motem router then I turn it back on.

On my home network, it starts from the “cloud” or further known as the Internet. From there my internet provider is Earthlink, who provides my network with our wifi. We get our wifi from the phone wire that is in our living room. From there, the phone wire is also connected to our modem router. Everything on our network is wireless, which means it does not have to be connected. For instance, our computers, phones, Apple t.v, tablets and desktops are all wireless because they are not connected to our router.

I learned so much from learning about my network. I now know where my wifi comes through, and who provides it. I also learned how expensive wifi can be! I also know that anything you have taken from your computer and downloaded it or put it on the internet will always be there, so that’s why you have to be very careful about what you decide on putting on the internet.

Something I would advise for people who have a home network is to be careful and pay attention to what you decide on doing on your computer, because people could always find what you do and that could be dangerous for your future. I also would say not to download sketchy things onto your computer because that could bring viruses onto your computer.

My home network starts with the internet cloud, which is provided by Comcast, that is connected to a coax cable. The coax cable is in the dining room, and that cable is connected to the modem router.The modem router is connected to the ether net cable. The router gives off WiFi which connects to the devices in my home. These devices are my PS3 , Iphone (3),Laptop (2), Printer,Ipad. These are the things that make up my home network.

My cable is a fiber optics cable that comes into my house through my little brothers room and goes into the hallway to my modem-router which is black and has 5 green lights.

I have verizon fios which costs 60 dollars a month for a total of 720 dollars a year.

My family has 4-5 laptops, a desktop, multiple phones and a printer connected to our home network.  One thing that should be noted is that everything is connected in your home network and oftentimes you can get into one device from another.

My L.A.N. is what provides me and my house with internet. My I.S.P. is Verizon. Devices connected to my L.A.N. are electrons like my cell phone, my laptop, the school's cromebook, my Nook HD tablet, my Xbox, the Wii, my mom's cell phone, my brother's laptop, my friend's cell phone, and her brother's cell phone. What I've learned about networks are that your parents and service provider can see what you are or were on. So beware.

I have a lot of devices that are connected to my home network. I have 4 mobile phones, 5 house phones, 4 TV's, 1 PS3, 1 ipod, 1 tablet, 6 computers, and 1 roku box. I've learned new things about the internet and my own home network. I learned what my internet service provider was, the type of wire that gives me internet, and were the internet wire is located throughout my house. Your home network is what gives us the power to browse, research, and work on the internet. The best thing to do is learn more about it.

My home network is Xfinity by Comcast and it is around $400 a year for our internet. The devices on my network are, my phone, my Mom's phone, the wii, my laptop, and the house laptop. 

I learned that there are all different cables that connect your internet to your house. Also I learned how things travel in packets to get to one place to another.


To be safe and to get network who have fibers in their cables because the internet connection will be better because the fibers make it faster.

All the devices connected to my home network are two iPads, four laptops, two TVs,  two Chromecast devices, and three phones. I learned what the different between the Firewall and the Antivirus, how a page is transmitted to me from across the world, and lastly was surprised how much the internet costs.

     The devices that are connected to my internet connection is my iPod touch, Samsung tablet, 7 laptop including mine, and 6 iPhone. I learned that you need a modern and router to access the internet. Without them, we wouldn't be in the internet right now. I also learned that you need a coaxial cable to sent the information through the modern and router. Using a coaxial cable give you higher frequency signal and stop other things from interfering with the external source. For the OMG moment i learned that you shouldn't post things to your friend because you don't know what they will do with it. They can upload it online without your permission and share it to others.They can embarrassed you without even knowing. I find it interesting that when you share something or post something online anyone can basically read it. To tell other people how to use a internet service provider/home network i would say that you need a internet service provider because that will be your company to get internet and you will also need a modern/router unless you got wireless. You will also need a coaxial cable to access the internet and stop thing from interfering with the cable. You can connect devices to the home network or WiFi by simply clicking to turn on the WiFi and joining your own network. After you access the WiFi you can now get on anything and search anything you want .

1. All of the devices on my L.A.N. are 4 computers, 3 phones, 1 Ipod, and a Nook. My ISP is Verizon, I have an Ethernet cable, and a modem/router combination. 

2. My OMG moment was when I found how fast the internet travels, even though it has many jobs to do before it reaches your device.

3. I would tell people to be careful when they choose their ISP because some providers can slow down your internet and charge extra fees. Also, reading the terms and conditions is helpful because you'll know what you're getting yourself into.

Currently, there are 7 things that are connected to my L.A.N., 4 laptops and 3 smart phones. My Chromebook, my laptop, my mom's laptop, my grandma's laptop, my phone, my mom's phone and my grandma's phone. I learned that networks, prior to recent thoughts, are a lot MORE complex than I thought. I actually encourage people to try and learn more about their home network because it's really interesting to know where exactly your Internet comes from. I bet you it's not as easy as you thought!

My I.S.P is Comcast. It enters my house through my dining room on the first floor of my hose. It uses a Modem/Router connected by Ethernet. The desktop in the dining room is connected by Ethernet cables directly. The printer, cell phones, laptops, and other computers are connected through wireless. The home phone and game systems are connected through Wi-Fi, along with a Blu-Ray player that can access Netflix Streaming and Pandora. When I learned about this, I was surprised to learn that my printer needed Wi-fi to functio.

My Home Network starts off with my ISP (internet service provider), which is Comcast.The internet comes in through my home from our Dining Hall from an Ethernet cable. This goes straight to my modem and router, which is separate. The two are then connected by another Ethernet cable and ultimately end by connecting to my desktop. The WiFi that is emitted then spreads through the house to connect all of the smartphones, laptops, tablets, and Smart TV's to the internet.
I did end up having an "OMG" moment when I realized that there were so many wires in my life. All those wires have a purpose for keeping the internet up and running in my house.
Advice for others. Libraries still exist. Of course the internet, in my opinion, will make all the libraries go out of business, so lets try NOT to make that happen. It is your choice. Knock yourself. But I guess if you want your parents to pay 765$ for internet every year, then go right ahead.

​​My home network begins with my ISP, or the internet service provider, mine being Verizon. First it's connected to my modem/router combo by the Ethernet cable, which then connects to the desktop computer and home phone. I also have wifi connecting any laptops, cellphones, gaming devices and TV's in the house. 
I have learned quite quickly that the rather unorganized network of cables in my dinning room is actually a lot more complicated than it already looks. There's a huge bundle of inner connecting wires that pull everything together in the end. 
Everyone should really know that the ISP network is very complicated and very important. Without it, you wouldn't have internet at all, and frankly I doubt anyone could live without it.

My L.A.N is connected to my Modem/Router in my room. It is connected to my desktop, my brother's desktop, and my mother's desktop. At this moment my internet is down because the all-in-one router and modem wifi's was horrible so when i do something while someone is watching youtube it takes a while to load. When i learned about Network or the INTERNET.
I abused it. By secretly going on my Eldest brother's desktop to play games and got in trouble until i got my own desktop. It brok because it was over 20 years old. I now have a Vista that is now a Windows 7. In my opinion and everyone i that i know of that has knowledge about computers, "VISTA MEANS DEATH". We all find it true and hilarious. But never in my life i had a OMG moment in learning new things on the internet because i learned the internet at a very young age ( 4 years old). But i was never the spoiled brat type, i always used what i have to it's fullest. Sometimes i might want to be spoiled but then later on i don't want to be spoiled. 

The only Advice i'd give to people who are new to ISP/Home networking, is never pirate stuff without knowing what to do. Or do unnecessary without knowing what to do or without asking others for help that know a lot of techy stuff.

My internet is provided by Comcast and it goes through my living room to a modem, connected by  covax wire. Connected to my modem is an ethernet cord which connects my house phone and my desk top. Then, there's my Wi-Fi ! Connected to my wi-fi is my game system, tablet, TV, printer, laptop, and my cell phone.
