Example text

Network interface cards (NICs) supply the connection between the computer and the network's physical medium. The NIC supplies the MAC or hardware address that is used to identify a computer on the network. • Internetworking devices are used to connect network computers and other devices. Hubs, bridges, switches, and routers are devices that provide different strategies for connecting PCs and managing (or in the case of a hub, not managing) the network bandwidth. • A motherboard is the main circuit board for a PC, and it provides the connection point for the processor and peripheral cards.

You will also want to be sure you have a couple of decent screwdrivers. These screwdrivers should not have magnetized tips. Now, here are the steps to follow: 1. Open up the case on the computer and install the NIC in an open expansion slot. 2. Close up the case and attach the network medium (typically twisted-pair cabling). 3. Boot up the computer. If you purchased a plug-and-play network card and are using an OS that supports plug-and-play technology, the most you will have to do is provide a disk or CD-ROM that contains the driver for the NIC.

Bus networks are easy to assemble and are easy to extend. They require a fairly limited amount of cabling when compared to other topologies. Bus networks are prone to cable breaks, loose connectors, and cable shorts that can be very difficult to troubleshoot. One physical problem on the network, such as a detached connector, can actually bring down the entire bus network. Although at one time a bus network would have been the cheapest and easiest way to connect a small group of computers for peer-to-peer networking, the drop in the price of hubs (discussed in the next section on star networks) and the ease of using twisted-pair wire have really pushed the coaxial cable bus network to the edge of extinction.
