1) My local area network is Comcast and the internet connects to the modem with the coax cable. Then, the modem is connected to the router with a ethernet cord. Lastly, the router connects to all my devices at my house are 4 wireless phones, 1 wire home phone, 2 wireless laptop, 1 wired computer, and 1 wireless printer with wiFi.
2) I learned about how the information were sent through packets to get to us. Also, I learned that there were different wires like coax and also that Verizon provider has a 2 in1 modem/router, other internet providers has two of them separately.
3) I would tell other people that they need to know about having an home network is which wires connect to what and the process on how our computers receive information and also about the internet providers.
