Comcast is my internet service provider. The coax cable travels from the telephone pole outside of our house into the side of our house, which runs through the walls where it is connected to our Modem. Our modem is then wired to the wireless router, which is locked. The router is wired to the desktop, whereas all of our other network devices are wireless. Our printer is wired to the desktop and our laptops are wirelessly connected to the printer so we can print wirelessly.
On our home network we have an iPhone, iPod, HTC Touchpad and two laptops that are always connected. They are connected to the router wirelessly.
The internet is $150 per month; we have the triple play.
What I have learned from this project is that you have to have your network secured so no one can use the internet you pay for.
