My home network

  1. explain your L.A.N. Local Area Network - all the devices on your internet connection. On our connection we have 2 desktop computers, my brother’s laptop and our printer.

  2. reflect on what you learned about networks, did you have an OMG moment that you learned something new and interesting? if now write about what you learned. I was very fascinated about the wires connecting to our house. I learned that we has an ISP Fiber Optic wire. Our wifi also comes in from our basement.

  3. what would you tell other people that they need to know about having an ISP/Home network? The ISP is what connects the internet to you house through your router.

My Home Network

My L.A.N expands to a ton of devices. Basically, if you’re in the front area of my house and know the wifi password, you can use it. There are nine devices regularly connected to the internet including the Roku, WiiU, my mom’s iPad, Dave’s Nook, Mom’s iPhone, Dave’s iPhone, my iPhone, my 3Ds, and Dave’s computer.

While doing this project, I was kind of surprised by the shadiness of Comcast. I’ve always known the were unreliable from overhearing my mom deal with them, but I never realized the extent of it. Since we’ve done this too I’ve had a a lot anxiety about the fact that everything I do on the internet will always be there. It’s terrifying, and there’s not really a way to get around it.

If I could tell people anything based on what I learned, it would be to be more self conscious about who or what has access to your home network. Once they’re in, they’re in, and there’s a ton people could be doing with your internet proccess without you even knowing.

My Home Network

Q1: Explain your L.A.N. Local Area Network - all the devices on your internet connection?

Since my modem/router comes with 2 wifi channels, we split them up. I use the second channel for my computer, xbox, and my phone. The main channel is used for everything else, except the desktop hooked up through an ethernet cable.

Q2: Reflect on what you learned about networks, did you have an OMG moment that you learned something new and interesting? if now write about what you learned?

There wasn’t many new things I really learned, but I didn’t know about packets not being sent and having to be resent. I was surprised by the stages the packets went through. I didn’t realize how many stages there are to getting and receiving something from the internet, going through multiple routers and service providers.

Q3: What would you tell other people that they need to know about having an ISP/Home network?

They should know that its better to get something that goes through fiberoptic cables rather than copper cables/wires. Its also good to make sure your getting something that won’t run slow or at least meets your needs and requirements.

My home network

1) In my L.A.N (Local Area Network) there are quite a few devices. There are three Iphones, one for each family member, two desktops (owned by my parents for work), two laptops (one for my mom and one for me), one Ipad (my father’s), and a WiiU.

2) Throughout this project, I was surprised to learn about how complicated the process of information transfer in. There are many more steps than I ever imagined. Firewalls, codes, sorter things, it’s way more than a few button clicks and some code.

3) I think I other people should know how complex home networks are, and not take them for granted. They really are incredible, but we’ve gotten so used to using them that they seem less than the amazing pieces of tech they are.

My Home Network

Zeke's Diagram

My Local Area Network Consists of three separate wifi connections coming from the router/modem. The first connection connects an android phone a cable box and 2 laptops. The second connection consists of an android phone and a iphone, 2 laptops,and a cable box. The last connection has a PS4, Desktop, and an android phone. I had learned that the connections have to be separate to have a better connection than others and to always know what you have in the internet provider. I would tell people to put their router above things and always know what you’re signing up for.

I Don't Belong Here - Andora Robinson

My mother’s voice woke me out of my sleep. ¨Get out of bed Andy. It’s time to go to church.¨ ¨Okay mommy.¨ I said with the innocence that only a 7-year-old could have. I was always excited for Sundays. I got to put on my best dresses and see my bible school teacher who always smelled like cookies. But today was going to be different. Today I was going to sit in the pews with all the adults. I was a big girl now.

As we were getting ready to leave the house my mom fussed over the collar of my dress and made me put a scarf on even though we were in the middle of spring. She looked me deep in my brown eyes and said ¨You’re a big girl now so make sure you behave.¨ Today I wish she gave me a better warning of what I was about to walk into.

As we stepped in the door of the church where the preaching happened. I immediately felt a mixture of being uncomfortable & uncertainty. This was so much different that the environment I’m used to. There are no children’s pictures to cover the walls and no one to read bible stories to us on the reading carpet. Instead, all of my comforts were replaced with hard wooden pews, cold air, and stained glass.

In the midst of all this confusion, I immediately calmed down when I saw my favorite pastor step up to the podium. I had never heard him preach before but he always stopped by during bible school to say hi. He greeting the church members and lead in morning prayer. His next words shocked me.

¨Today we’re gonna talk about the ultimate sin. Liking someone of the same sex is not holy. God does not love or accept fags.¨ The people in the audience gave their approval of this statement. Shouting ¨Amen.¨ at these ridiculous claims. While I just sat there shocked. This isn’t what I learned in bible school. I was taught that God loves everyone but apparently I was wrong.

As months went by and I continued to listen to his sermons. I found myself disagree with what he was preaching. Eventually, I just stopped going to church at all.

Now that I’m older I question what religion really is. Because there are so many stories and beliefs, not all of them can be true. Maybe even none of them are true. The system of religion I believe was to bring people together. To make them have something in common. But, throughout the years I think the system has been tainted. Mostly with our own opinions. We use religion as a way to discriminate and be cruel to people all because of what they believe in.

By no means am I saying that you shouldn’t be religious. But, don’t treat people differently because of it. If you know something is wrong then acknowledge it. Instead of just accepting it.

Since my experience at church, I study different religions and follow what I feel is right. I am aware in my decisions and I refuse to follow things blindly.

My Home Network

Explain your L.A.N. Local Area Network - all the devices on your internet connection.

The devices that are connected are mostly portal devices, such as phones, laptops, and tablet.

Reflect on what you learned about networks, did you have an OMG moment that you learned something new and interesting?

I learned that wifi and the internet are two totaly different things. I then also learned that there are two kinds of routers, a router and modem combination router and a modem and router (not together)

What would you tell other people that they need to know about having an ISP/Home network?

i would tell people that believe it or not, your home network and the internet are totally different.

My Home Network

-The devices I have connected to my internet connection are 3 cell phones, a tablet, and a laptop.

-At first I didn’t really know much about my home network, now I have a better understanding of it. The coax cable connects to the modem router which gives an internet connection to all of your devices. Also, I would like to mention that creating an actual visual diagram is very helpful for you.

-I could tell other people to actually pay attention to everything that goes on in their own Home Network so they can have a better understanding and to be aware.

My Home Network

Explain your L.A.N. Local Area Network - all the devices on your internet connection. 3 androids phones, 3 laptops and 1 iMac.

Reflect on what you learned about networks, did you have an OMG moment that you learned something new and interesting? if now write about what you learned. I had an OMG moment when I learned that the WIFI connection goes down ( I thought that was like magic ), also when I learned that all the snaps sent went to a server uncontrollable and that some people were pay to find some pictures about us when we will looking for a job!

what would you tell other people that they need to know about having an ISP/Home network? They need to know that could be expensive (even if in my case that’s in my location…) and they should put their modem high to have a better connection.

1.a) Wire looks white, It’s a coax b) It’s wire into our fist floor 2. Yes I have a combination of a router and a modem and it’s connected to all the devices in my house. That is my phone, my parents’, our 3 laptops and a tablet 3. Direct TV 4. $34 mon= $408.00

My home network

a+b. what does that wire look like? The wire is relatively bigger then almost all wires, it’s a coax cable it goes across all the other wires into verizon Fios box it has a better reception even if there is a storm or a lot of wind gust.

  1. Do you have a modem and a router or a combination modem and router?What is connected to this router/modem? Name all the devices that use wiFi in your home. I have a combination of a modem and a router with a metal tip. It is connected from the verizon fios box installed in the basement. The devices are the tv, home phones and version cable box.

  2. Who is your ISP? (internet service provider) My ISP is Verizon, but I had a couple other recently.

  3. how much is does the internet cost per month? multiply the monthly cost by 12. What is that dollar amount? The internet cost $60.00 per month with the plan. 6012=720 . The dollar amount is$720 for a period of 12 months.

My home network

explain your L.A.N. Local Area Network - all the devices on your internet connection. My Local Area Network or L.A.N can be very slow at times, at my house we have many electronic devices such as iphones, ipad,computer,game systems and more. The L.A.N can also be slow do to my neighbors being so close.

Reflect on what you learned about networks, did you have an OMG moment that you learned something new and interesting if now write about what you learned.? Well when it comes to networks it’s very difficult to understand, since it was first used by the military. I also learned that the network can be a very dangerous place because now a days people hide behind their computer screens and harass young users of technology or take a lot of money from people by hacking.

what would you tell other people that they need to know about having an ISP/Home network? Other people should know to take good care of their home network and use apps which erase virus to keep them and their love ones safe from any harm.

my home network

explain your L.A.N. Local Area Network - all the devices on your internet connection. my router has the power to my internet, us/ds ( upstream, downstream), 2.4 ghz, 5 ghz.

reflect on what you learned about networks, did you have an OMG moment that you learned something new and interesting? if now write about what you learned? I learned that my network is expensive that was new and it’s interesting that my network can connect to all these devices and still be fast. what would you tell other people that they need to know about having an ISP/Home network?

Pick your service provider wisely and smartly if that means a package deal or anything be smart about your network.

My Home Network

explain your L.A.N. Local Area Network - all the devices on your internet connection:

At my house our internet provider is Comcast, Xfinity. From that we have two wifi networks, “Luna Lunera” and “Luna Lunera Guest”. On Luna Lunera their are 3 Iphones, my moms each have one and so do I. Then their are 3 laptops connected, one for each family member. Then their is a Smart TV connected. On “Luna Lunera Guest” my Iphone, laptop and the Smart TV are also at times connected. Whenever we have guests we connect them to it.

reflect on what you learned about networks, did you have an OMG moment that you learned something new and interesting? if now write about what you learned:

I learned that Internet is physical and W.W.W. (World Wide Web) is not. I also learned that fios means at the speed of light, so coax cables bring you slower internet. I had an OMG moment when I realized that the internet is not owned or controlled by anyone but it is a network of providers and systems all interacting with each other. I had many OMG moments but another I had is realizing how complex the Internet and the W.W.W. are.

what would you tell other people that they need to know about having an ISP/Home network?:

I would tell them that everything you do, is always in the history of your device, Internet and W.W.W. Also that if you have the money get Fios instead of Xfinity because Fios is at the speed of light which will make your browsing faster. Also know that you can block things through your Internet and it makes it that anyone using your internet cannot access what you have blocked.

My Home Network Arthur LaBan

-Explain your L.A.N. Local Area Network - all the devices on your internet connection. First I have two modem routers. The newer one has two connections Home-E17-(2.4/5), and the other router is Nola. Between the two routers is a connecting ethernet cable. Connected to Nola is my mothers computer my Ps4 and my smart tv. My printer is connected to Home-E17-2.4 and so are my bose speakers. All of our phones and our computers except my mothers are connected to both Home-E17-2.4 and Home-E17-5. -Reflect on what you learned about networks, did you have an OMG moment that you learned something new and interesting? if now write about what you learned. I learned how intricate they are. I always connected to networks without a second thought but now I realize all of the things that have to work right to give me a connection. -What would you tell other people that they need to know about having an ISP/Home network? That it is a big responsibility. Not only does it cost a lot but it does mean a lot depending on who your ISP provider is. You need to know what you are buying before you buy it.

My Home Network

1) Explain your L.A.N. Local Area Network - all the devices on your internet connection.

A) My local area network spans throughout my entire house. I could go anywhere in my house and connect my devices to the WIFI and they’ll have no problem hooking up. The devices that I have on my network now are my computer and my sisters and I’s phones. I guess you could connect any pocket device but for now that’s what I have connected.

2) Reflect on what you learned about networks, did you have an OMG moment that you learned something new and interesting? if now write about what you learned.

A)I learned that depending on your internet provider there can be restrictions. Take the School District for example. Their network has certain websites that are forbidden to use once you’re connected to their network. To ensure that you do not go on the websites that could be hazardous to students and people in the work place they are able to block websites.

3)What would you tell other people that they need to know about having an ISP/Home network?

A)You are the only one who can control your home network. Unlike the school district’s network there are no restricted webpages or sites unless you put them there. Depending on your internet service provider your limitations may differ but for the most part you are in control of what you allow yourself to view on the internet.

My Home Network

explain your L.A.N. Local Area Network - all the devices on your internet connection.

My L.A.N. is my home wifi. All the devices in my home are connected to it, including phones and computers.

reflect on what you learned about networks, did you have an OMG moment that you learned something new and interesting? if now write about what you learned.

I did not know about routers and how they take the internet connection and disperse it to all of your devices. I also found where the router is in my house.

what would you tell other people that they need to know about having an ISP/Home network?

Do not get cheated by the system. Cable and Verizon are selling you a lot of stuff that is completely unnecessary.

My Home Network

1) Explain your L.A.N. Local Area Network - all the devices on your internet connection.

A) My phone, my mom’s T.V., and my older brothers laptop are all connected by WIFI. My younger brothers Xbox is connected by an ethernet cable.

2) Reflect on what you learned about networks, did you have an OMG moment that you learned something new and interesting? if now write about what you learned.

A) I found out that if you set up your internet in a high place in your home the internet will be faster and better for the whole house.

What would you tell other people that they need to know about having an ISP/Home network?

A) You should first make sure that the internet service provider is providing you with fast speed internet. That I know of Verizon Fios is the fastest internet provider.

MY HOMENETWORK

Explain your L.A.N. Local Area Network - all the devices on your internet connection. I have many devices connected to my modem combination router. They are all connected wirelessly to my router. I have four phones connected to 3 Iphones and 1 LG. I also have three laptops connected to my router along with my LG television. Reflect on what you learned about networks, did you have an OMG moment that you learned something new and interesting? if now write about what you learned. I learned that there are many different types of routers. The type of router I have is a modem combination router but there is also many other wireless ones. I also learned that some devices need a cable to be able to get internet connection.

What would you tell other people that they need to know about having an ISP/Home network? I would recommend finding as much information as you can about it before buying it. For example if its wireless if it has ports to connect devices like the playstation or the xbox. Also when you set up the router at your house and they’re wireless put them in one of the higher levels of your class so the internet falls down instead of going up. Which makes it harder and slower for the internet to reach the device.

The devices connected to my L.A.N are a TV, two iphones, two laptops, a printer ,and an xbox. I learned that internet isn’t magical and that it gets to me by traviling through many diffrent cables and servers. People should know that having more than one wifi network can speed up your connection.
