Zack Hersh's Home Network

Tech Reflection

  1. My internet comes into my home through my wireless router
  2. My ISP is Verizon
  3. My internet is paired with my phone and TV. Together they cost $150 a month and costs $1800
  4. On my home network is my iPod, my phone, my laptop, my dad's phone, iPad and laptop, my mom's phone iPad and laptop, our phone service, our TV, and our Wii.
  5. All of these objects are connected wirelessly.

I learned a lot about networks from this experience. I found out that most people get their internet from a router. I also learned that internet falls down, so the best place for a router to go for the strongest network connection is the top floor of the house. Networks can have a lot of different various things on them at once. Also, a lot more things use the internet than I thought at first. Most of the time, people don't want to share their internet so it is password guarded.

What other people need to know about having their own home network provided by an ISP is there are a lot of bad things out in the inter-world that they need to be aware of and protected against.
