My Home Network

  • There’re many devices connected to my internet connection , they are all the 4 phones used in my family , then there’re 2 other pads , and they’re 2 laptops connected . There is an extended wire directly connecting the internet down stairs to my brother’s Xbox and also his gaming computer.

  • You use wifi and the internet every day all the time , most people know where it’s coming from, although there’re many people that don’t know where it is coming from . So I encourage you to learn about where all that is coming from.

My Home Network

explain your L.A.N. Local Area Network - all the devices on your internet connection. 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. what would you tell other people that they need to know about having an ISP/Home network?

  1. All the devices on my L.A.N are two iphones. two lg’s, one samsung phone , one dell laptop and a tv
  2. Something interesting I learned while looking at my network was that my service provider used copper rather then using light like verizon uses
  3. What I would tell other that they needed to know about their ISP\ Home network is to look at your provider and see if you are really getting all you need and not just a rip off.

what would you tell other people that they need to know about having an ISP/Home network? If you want faster internet, you should get a network with fiboroptics.

My Home Network

How does it work?

A few weeks ago I needed to discover how internet gets to my home for an assignment. So, naturally, I started outside, and looked at the different wires that go into my house. The wire that I found brings internet to our house is called a CoAxel wire. It comes into the house from the back, along with a power wire and a few other lines. The CoAxel brings internet into the house through the garage, then goes through the basement and connects to them modem and router. The modem and router are what distribute internet to all of my family’s devices. They’re connected to a TV, Two IPhones, and a few computers.

What did you learn?

I knew that internet comes to my house through a wire, but I didn’t know that there were different kinds of wires. There are two different types; Fiber Optics, and CoAxel. CoAxel, which is what I have, basically brings internet and radio signals through a wire. Fiber optics is much faster, and it’s because it brings internet to the house using light.

What should people know about having an ISP?

Everyone should know how much they’re paying per month, and exactly what they’re paying for. That means people should know how their internet works, so they don’t get ripped off.

My Home Network

This is my home network. Every device I have is connected to my network. The devices that are connected to my network are, my phone, parents phone, Ipad, video game, TV, printer, my laptop, and my dad’s laptop. These are all the devices that are connected to my network. All the devices work by WIFI connection. Our provider is Verizon. We have a combination router. The cord we have is Ethernet cord. Lastly we pay $35 a month.

I didn’t have an OMG moment learning about my network because I already knew from beforehand.

What I would tell other people is that it’s very important to know how your network works. You never might know when there will be a problem in your network.

My Home Network

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

-My modem router with the ISP being comcast. Connected to HOME-0E0F-2.4 is more of the mobile devices. I have my PS3, my mothers Android phone, My brother and my IPhone 6’s. Connected to HOME-0E0F-5 is the two mackbooks in my home.

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 already knowledgeable about ISP’s, Routers and things like that, it was fun to find out more about the WWW and looking deeper into what was going on behind the scenes.

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

-I would tell them that they need to know, like what a L.A.N is and the devices connected to your Wifi. Also the cost of your internet because that is important in knowledge.

My Home Network

  • All the devices that uses our internet are computers and phones. then there are our tablets, Apple TV, and gaming consoles.
  • I didn’t really have an OMG moment when researching on this topic, but I guess I learned more on how my internet works (like how it is distributed).
  • I would tell other people that it will be very expensive and should be wise on what they do on the internet.

What devices are on my LAN? There are two android phones, a small smart tv, our Wii U, two Amazon Kindles, one Amazon Kindle Paper White, and two Windows 10 DELL computers one for the family and one for my dad's work. We also have an extender which has out family tv, Xbox One,and two more android phones.

I didn't really learn anything new about LAN, however, the video we watched in class on how your network works was cool and makes things simpler and easier to remember.

I would tell you to make sure you know how many devices would probably be connected so that you could make sure you have internet that is fast enough and a modem router extender if you need.

My Home Network

The devices on my internet connection are: my iPhone and chromebook, my sister’s iPhone and chromebook, an iPhone an Macbook, an iPhone, our Wii, a Sony Blu-Ray player, our HP printer, and a chromecast.

When learning about networks, I did know a lot of what I learned already, such as knowing that the black wire in my kitchen brings internet into my house. But, I also learned something new, that my network is run through Fiber Optics, which uses light to make the network run “faster”. But in reality, it doesn’t run that fast, and my devices still run really slow on wifi. This is most likely because there are so many devices connected.

I would tell other people that when having a Home Network, they need to know how the internet gets into their house, what their ISP (Internet Service Provider) is charging them, in case it is too much, and how many devices are connected wifi, because that might slow the whole network down.

My Home Network

As you can see in my network web, there are 13 devices on my home network. I have 4 laptops, 2 desktops, 3 cell phones, two ipads, an xbox and an apple tv. All of these things in my L.A.N. While I was creating my web I learned that internet doesn’t just appear in my house it goes through a long process to get there. When ever there were wifi shortages in my home I thought it was my isp slipping up but now I know that its difficult to get super fast internet into my house and that there is a good reason if its not as fast as usual. I learned a lot from doing this project and here’s some advice I would give others about their isp or home network. Its really important to know where your internet comes from and how much you are paying per month because a lot of times isp’s rip you off. Its also important to keep track of how fast your internet actually is and how fast your isp said it should be, another way you can get ripped off. The last thing I would tell people is to be patient with your wifi because it takes lots of time and effort to get a network you are happy with.

My Home Network

During this time in Tech, we were ask to explain our home network. I have a Modem/Router that is connected to the World Wide Web(WWW) by a ISP Fiber Optic. I get my wifi from Verizon, which goes to the Modem/Router. Every device is connected to that wifi, except for my printer, which is connected to the Modem/Router by a printer cord. What I learn out of this is that the network is more connected than I thought. Just looking from my own network told me that we really are connected more ways than we can think of. My advice to people, is to do your research when picking a service provider. They can play you real dirty.

My Home Network

My network is Verizon. I have three tablets, one is Windows and the other two are androids. I have two computers, one is PC and the other is Windows. I have one DELL laptop. Lastly, I have five cellular devices, two are LG phones, and the other three are iPhones. I didn’t know anything about networks until I had this class. I learned that everything is connected to a network no matter what device you use. I don’t recall having a OMG moment. I would tell other people to be careful with what you do online because anyone can access your ISP/Home network and find out all the little things you do.

My Home Network

Explain your L.A.N. Local Area Network - all the devices on your internet connection. Reflect on what you learned about networks, did you have an OMG moment that you learned something new and interesting? if no Write about what you learned. What would you tell other people that they need to know about having an ISP/Home network?

  1. I learned that a network connects us to the web that is just like a bunch of internet connections connected to each other that connects all of us, it’s crazy.

  2. I learned that our internet service provider could give us free internet but won’t because they suck. I also learned that without internet we would probably be stuck in the stone ages.

  3. Something that some people should know about their ISP is that your service provider has access to their history…..so be careful.

Home Network Digitized & Blogged

My L.A.N. (Local Area Network) contains computers, phones, and gaming systems. Some are wired and others are wireless, but they are all connected by the router.

I learned a lot about networks. I learned about the importance of I.S.P.s and routers, and how everything is connected, even though you cannot see it. I also can see that if the router is not working, nothing will work at all.

Having an ISP/Home Network in this time is important. Many tasks done in the present need a computer or phono to complete. It is becoming more and more important to have.

Maya Kohl Home Network

1) My networks are four phones, five computers and two ipads.

2) The network is very intricate and complicated, what i learned from it is that nothing is gone. If you take a picture you didn’t mean to take or didn’t like and delete it its not deleted. It’s gone from your reach but it’s still on the internet, it will be forever. So i learned to remember this and be safe with it.

3) One thing to know about having home network is that you should write down all your passwords on actual paper, and put it somewhere very safe like a bank account. I said actual paper, because a picture is on the internet. It could go missing very easy, and all your information could be gone and/or unsafe to public. People could log into your accounts and it could escalate badly.

My Home Network

There are 8 devices on my internet connection. My phone, my mom’s phone, my dad’s phone, my brother’s playstation, my computer, my dad’s computer, a Roku media player, and a printer. I was surprised to learn that my ISP is really expensive. I would tell people that they should know that if you put your router on the top floor of your house, the connection will be better.

My Home Network

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

My internet service provider is Verizon, and it costs roughly 60$ a month. It comes through copper wire. Then it goes through my modem and then is sorted through my router and then goes to my family’s devices wirelessly: Brother’s ipod, sister’s ipod, mom’s macbook, dad’s PC, my PC, my phone, my sister’s phone, my dad’s phone, and my mom’s phone.

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

I thought it was interesting how the internet travels through a wire. I never really thought about how it got to my house.

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

The people should know how much their internet costs and how it gets into their house.

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.
