- 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.”

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.
