My Home Network

I learned that one modem gives connection to all my devices in my home.  My modem is a phone jack and we always have a phone number.  The wifi gives connection to most of the things in my home.  I also learned that the placement of the modem doesn't give me good signal in my room because it doesn't travel through concrete walls very much.  My modem is a dull band modem, 5 ghz and 2.4 ghz.  I also didn't know that the coaxial cable gives my modem a signal and converts it to internet.

I had a handful but the one that really made my wheels spin was that if I use someone's wifi that they can actually see what I search! I searched how to make my mean family member feel comfortable, this means my cousins saw this! that's why they were asking all of those questions, lol.

My Home Network

The world wide web leads into the router. The router does two things.It’s connected to the laptop by an ethernet cord and connected with five smart phones. The laptop is connected to a printer with a printer cable. That’s how my internet is used in my household.

I learned that my internet is connected to A LOT of things no wonder it’s slow at times.

If I could tell somebody about their home network I would tell them to really look at how your internet is connected and see is there anyways you can improve the speed of it?

My Home Network

explain your L.A.N. Local Area Network - all the devices on your internet connection. I have the modem which receives the connection for my house. Then the modem sends out wireless signals for two different networks. I strategically have devices on the networks I would like them to be on for the best connection. Anything used primarily for streaming I put on one network, and anything else is on the other.

reflect on what you learned about networks, did you have an OMG moment that you learned something new and interesting? I always thought that the internet was everything visible online, when its really made up of servers, computers, and modems etc.

what would you tell other people that they need to know about having an ISP/Home network? Keep your modem as high as possible for the best connection.

Donny's home network

My house's ISP is Verizon Fios, ​my L.A.N is a Modem router that gets its data from a grey cat/10 wire. Everything connected to it by wires are my parent's computers that are wired to the router by ethernet cords and also the TV in the living room as well as the telephone I think but I don't know what kind of wire though. The things connected wirelessly include my laptops, my sister's laptops and our Iphones, and me and my mother's tablets. Learning about the network was a fun as I found the mini video about the network funny. I'm not that easy to make go OMG unless it's a very funny video or it's so dramatic in my opinion. I would say that when you get an ISP/Home network look up the real price then multiply the price by 12 to see how much money you'r using for wifi for a year.

My Home Network

explain your L.A.N. Local Area Network - all the devices on your internet connection. -So I have Xfinity Comcast, so I have a coax cord and that is connected to a modem router. And then it is connected with all of my devices. And you can see it on the picture.

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 different routers and different ISP have different cords. On OMG that it can be a lot to have a app, like he had to start all over a couple time, so he can have a better app.

what would you tell other people that they need to know about having an ISP/Home network? -So I have Xfinity Comcast and the cord is a coax cord and it is connected to my modem router.

My Home Network

1. ​Explain your L.A.N. Local Area Network - all the devices on your internet connection.
In my house the following devices use my family's wifi: 3 desktop computers, 4 laptops, 4 smart phones, 1 iPod, 1 Amazon Echo, and 1 Roku stick.

2. Reflect on what you learned about networks, did you have an OMG moment that you learned something new and interesting? If not write about what you learned.
I learned that the internet you use in your home is not as direct as I had thought. It has to travel from a far away land all the way to your modem, and then it is distributed to all the devices connected to that modem. I think that's really interesting.

3. What would you tell other people that they need to know about having an ISP/Home network?
Just be aware of where your internet comes from and be in control of your home network.

My Home Network

How I explained all my local area network or how all the devices on the internet connection is first all the internet materials are in my house. Next, the modem/router is plug in the wire. Then, the modem’s wire is plug in the optical network terminal box where it makes the internet, tv channels, and the movies from the tv works. Last, the modem’s lights will flash green which means it works now so we get the internet username and password from the modem to connect it to our phones like my iphone 5s, two laptops, my mom’s tablet, iphone 6s plus, a tv, my little brother’s laptop, iphone 5, my older sister’s iphone 6s plus, and my grandma’s tv.

What I learned something new is that the white verizon box I’ve seen for 3 years was actually called the optical network terminal and it’s actually the main and important network that makes the internet, tv channels, and the free movies from the tv works.

What I would tell about the other people having the ISP or the home network is that the verizon fios is the fast internet and it’s cheaper than the old internet I used to have.

Andrews Home Network

explain your L.A.N. Local Area Network - all the devices on your internet connection.
        My L.A.N. is all my devices connected to a fios router, which is connected by a fiber optic cord then goes to the world wide web.

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 I learned was that the stuff you receive or send goes through an exploratory amount of distance and ect. to go to my computer or the receivers.


what would you tell other people that they need to know about having an ISP/Home network?
     I would tell them it takes a lot of money. Also that you have to buy fios because they have fiber optic cables which means it goes the speed of light almost.

My home network

My L.A.N. is connected to all my devices in my house. It comes through my home and goes through the cloud. It then goes through the Modem Router and connects to all my devices. I learned that there's more to internet than just internet. I would tell people to know what it is and how it works. 

My Home Network

This is my home network chart. The internet comes from the Cloud through Fiber Optic wires into my family's router in our dining room. From the router comes my home's WiFi, LYBCJ. That WiFI is connected to all of the devices in my family; my father's tablet and phone, my mother's tablet, my phone, my grandparents' iPad, and our desktop tower. The tower connects to our desktop computer, and two printers, by USB cords. I didn't have an "OMG moment", but I did learn a lot more in-depth about the way the internet works and gets to my devices. I didn't realize how much work it actually takes. If I were advising someone else, I'd tell them to choose a network with fiber optics, because I learned that it moves the fastest of all of the types of wires.

Sanaa's home network

My Local Area Network(LAN) provides internet for my phone(wireless), my moms phone(wireless), my laptop, my moms ipad(wireless), and my kindle(wireless).

These are all connected to one network. In doing this assignment I realized how much me and my family use the internet in everyday life.

My Home Network

My L.A.N is verizon for all my devices . I learned that finding things about your network can be tricky and hard to understand, but once you take a look at it a few times, it’ll make sense. I had to two OMG moments, one was when I found out how much it coast per month to have verizon services. My second OMG was when I realized how many devices I have in my house.

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.

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.
