Home Network, Misero

My home network starts off with the internet, just like everyone's network does. Branching off the internet is Comcast, my families internet provider. Comcast provides the internet through a co-axial cable. The cable comes in through my first floor living room and then connects to our modem router. The modem router also connects to the one desktop computer. Then we have the wifi, which has the most on our network. On the wifi we have 3 smartphones connected, printer, 3 laptops, and speakers that we can from out phones, computers etc.
Something that I learned during this unit was just how vast the internet is and how much happens just to load a page. For example my omg moment was when we watched that video in class about how the internet is basically like delivering packages across the world in seconds.
I would tell people that a home network is very simple, depending on the devices you possess. I would suggest having as many wireless devices as possible.

The wire that connects to the router is a co-axial cable​ that has many layers, one of which is copper wire and insulation, the co-axial cable is very thick as well. This wire comes into my house through the family room, and connects to the router. A desktop computer connects to the router, and the rest of my devices connect to wifi. 2 sets of speakers, 2 laptops, 4 iphones, an ipad, an xbox and a printer connect through the wifi. My internet service provider is comcast and my internet bill is around $60 dollars per month, multiplied by 12 is $720 per year.

My local network is xfinity. The wire is ran from the back outside of the house accessing the inside porch. The wire that runs through the house is called a coaix wire that looks black and is very thick. My home has a modem router. Many devices are connected to my internet wireless. We have a printer, three mobile smart phones, a play station three, laptop, a apple ipad and a Microsoft surface. 

Wow, what did I learn! I learned many many things that can go on for days. I learned that the acceptable use policy is very strict! Also, the school district can block whatever they so choice. So they can block things about global warming if they don't think we should learn about it.  I also learned about sending out a search word and it describes through Google organization to send the web page to my device. 

Personally, I would school them! Show them many videos to explain to them how they should and shouldn't use the computer. I would also notify them that WiFi and internet are not free and you should see how much it cost for your home network. I would defiantly tell them if they have there WiFi on there first floor move it to the highest floor of there home.

1. My L.A.N. Network is with Comcast. I have a modem AND router. It is not a all-in-one. What is on my home network aka WiFi are my computer, 3 laptops (including this one), 4 iPhones and 2 iPods, a wireless printer, my PS3, and my mom's kindle.

2. What I learned about home networks is that they are really expensive. Also how many things are on MY network because I have a lot of things. The policy here is really strict here even though most people find a way out of it. 

3. What I would teach people about home networks are that they cost money even though you can go certain places for free. I wouldn't recommend that because they some things blocked or you go on inappropriate sites so that is not good if you are not on your own network.

The devices connected to my L.A.N is 4 Laptops, 3 phones, an Xbox, a printer, and an iPod. While i was learning about Wireless internet i need no idea there was such a thing as a fire wall. I learned that a fire wall is something in your computer system that protects you from unauthorized websites. I would tell people that they really should know about what kind of modem or router they have in case there internet gets hacked into or it gets lost, then they need to know how to restart their WiFi.

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.”

1.  On my home network, I have one desktop computer, one laptop, two ipods, one tablet, one NOOK, a wireless printer, and my phone-line. 
2. I learned that the internet isn't just a magical thing that comes into my house and gives me facebook and instagram. It's actually very complex, and the companies are very smart in terms of what they want you to see, and how much people will pay to see them. I've never had a personal OMG moment, but my friends have had facebook posts the spiraled way out of control and hurt a lot of peoples feelings. 
3. People need to know how everything is connected to their network, because it can get really coonfusing. They need to be aware of what they are being charged for their internet, and whether or not it's as fast as they can get it. Also, I would tell people that they should know how each device is connected to the network.

I use the internet for many things in my life, including laptops, desktops, cell phones, and video games. It sounds like a lot, but it really isn't since it's all wireless.  I actually never knew that my printer could be connected to the internet, so that's cool.

So this is my Local Area Network. My I.S.P. is Sprint, I have a router that is located in my computer room, and my internet is wireless. The devices connected to the internet are four iPhones, three tablets, two laptops, the Apple/Samsung T.V., and two game systems. 

While doing this assignment, I learned many different things. I learned that everyone has a different network setup, different I.S.P.'s, different ways of connecting to the internet, and different devices that connect to their internet. My "OMG" moment was when I learned that there are three different kinds of cables that can connect our internet to our routers. The names of the cables are Coaxial Cable, Copper Wire, and Fiber Optic Cable.

After doing this project, I would tell other people that when choosing their internet service providers, they should choose wisely and make sure they are reliable.

My home network gets its inernet from Comcast, and then that transfers to the backroom of my home. Then it goes to the

 motem and router, and then it provides the inernet to the computers. Also,  the wifi is provided to the many laptops, ipods,

 phones that exist in our house. I learned what wires go to what machinery. To be honest, I had no idea how the inernet that

 came to the devices in the house worked. I also learned that sometimes there is a motem and router in one, and then there are

 those which are seperate. I had no idea what a motem or a router was until I learned it in class, and saw it my self when my

 dad explained it to me!

  ​This is my home network. First the cloud then it goes Xfinity then it goes through the coaxial cable, that connects through the bathroom. This attaches to a motem router and this creates the wi-fi. which connects to my laptop at home and my phone.  I would tell people to make sure everything is locked down. This means locking down your wi-fi and other such things. I'm Lydia Anderson and this is my home network

My L.A.N is what provides me and my house with internet connection. My internet service provider is Verizon FIOS, and the devices in my house that connect to this network are, my iPad, my iPod, and iPhone, both of my parents Laptops, my Laptop, and a desktop computer. The way that the internet comes into my house is from a fiberoptic cable that comes in through my room, and through the wall to our TV room, and plugs into the router though a coax cable. Then the internet is spread throughout our house though wifi. Something I learned about networks is that all the information that you request on the internet has to travel miles, and miles to get the request accepted, and then has to come all the way back. This process usually only takes seconds, or milliseconds, which I think is incredible. I would recommend to everyone that you make sure that what you search on the internet is safe and protected. Don't let anyone see what you are searching if they are not supposed to see it.

In my home network I have 10 devices hooked up to my wifi but they can work without wifi also. My cable is a Verizon Fios Cable that comes through my mom and dad's room. My ISP cord is a Fiber Optic Cable cord. And with that all my devices are connected to my wifi. I've learned so much on how these things work and I enjoyed it.

My Internet is provided by Comcast. It comes into my house through a coaxial cable. The coax cable is located in my brother's room. It is connected to our modem/router which is wired to a desktop. Other devices in my house are connected to the modem/router wirelessly. These devices would include: three laptops, five phones, an Apple TV, and one tablet.

My internet service provider is Verizon and my mom pays $1,800 a year for it. The network comes through my parents bed room through a co ax cable that is connected to a modem/router. The devices that are connected to that is 3 phones, 2 laptops,tv, kindle fire, and a ipod. I learned how to find out my own home networks and if it it comes to be I will know other people's too if they need my help finding what theirs is. I would tell people that their home network is a serious of devises connected to bring in internet for you to enjoy.

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.

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.
