A. Explain your L.A.N. (Local Area Network - all the devices on your internet connection.)
There are seven devices connected directly to my L.A.N. My mother, brother and I all have one phone and tablet connected to WiFi. On the L.A.N., we also have a desktop that is shared amongst the three of us that is directly connected to the router/modem and my brother and I have our personal laptops connected to the network through WiFi.
B. Reflect on what you learned about networks. Did you have an OMG moment that you learned something new and interesting? If not, write about what you learned.
I actually learned a lot about networks because I never knew how they worked, I just knew that they existed in many homes across America and the rest of the world. My “OMG” moment was when Ms.Hull said that if you have Verizon than you more than likely have a phone cord that connects the internet to your home. I thought that the internet was always connected to homes and other facilities through through ethernet.
C. What would you tell other people that they need to know about having an ISP/Home network?
I would tell others that have an ISP/Home Network that they need to be very careful about what they do and post on the internet because viruses and hackers could infiltrate your network if you aren’t. I would also tell them to educate themselves a little bit on home networks and how they work because if they don’t know at least the basics, a money-hungry company could overcharge them for something that they either don’t need or could've done themselves.
