      802.1Q

      802.1Q is also known as IEEE 802.1Q or VLAN tagging. It defines a virtual local area network. It is a protocol that allows virtual LANs to communicate with one another using a 3-layered router. It was developed as a part of IEEE 802. Why Was The 802.1Q Standard Developed? Large networks use up a lot

    • Ad Hoc Network

      Ad Hoc Network

      An ad hoc network is a type of peer to peer wireless network mode where wireless devices communicate with each other directly, without the aid of a Wireless Access Point (WAP) device. Wireless networks typically depend on a base station or WAP device to manage and direct the stream of data between wireless devices. In

    • WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy)

      WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy)

      Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) is the encryption algorithm built into the 802.11 (Wi-Fi) standard. WEP encryption uses the RC4 stream cipher with 40 or 104 bit keys and a 24 bit initialization vector. WEP Key Generation Most 802.11 devices allow WEP keys to be entered using an ASCII passphrase or in hexidecimal format. The conversion

    • What is Intersymbol Interference?

      What is Intersymbol Interference?

      Intersymbol interference is a signal distortion in telecommunication. One or more symbols can interfere with other symbols causing noise or a less reliable signal. The main causes of intersymbol interference are multipath propagation or non-linear frequency in channels. This has the effect of a blur or mixture of symbols, which can reduce signal clarity. If

      IP Address

      An IP (Internet Protocol) address is a unique address that different computers on a computer network use to identify and communicate with one another. An IP address is used as an identifier to find electronic devices connected to one another on a network. Therefore, each device in the network must have its own unique address.

    • RG-6

      RG-6

      RG-6 cable is one of the more common types of coaxial cables used for commercial and household purposes. The term RG-6 is a generic label that can be used to describe a whole range of cable designs. In fact, all cable designs described under RG-6 may well differ from one another in center conductor composition,

      WiFi Scanner

      There are many different products and services available, especially via the Internet, that allow users to detect and crack wireless computer networks. The majority of these programs are illegal, extremely complicated to use, or both. The WiFi Scanner, however, is easy to use and allows the user to detect networks that are further away while

    • PPP (Point-to-Point Protocol)

      PPP (Point-to-Point Protocol)

      PPP (Point-to-Point Protocol) is the most widely used method for transporting IP packets over a serial link between the user and the Internet Service Provider (ISP). Although PPP is primarily used over dialup lines, variants such as PPoE (PPP over Ethernet) and PPoA (PPP over ATM) extend PPP to new data-link layer protocols. PPP was

      How to Make Wireless Internet Faster

      Wireless Internet has numerous advantages, but there are also certain limitations. For example,  your computer has to be within the range of wireless broadcasters like routers and WiFi hotspots. Sometimes your computer may be in the range of one of these broadcasters, known as “wireless access points”, but it may not be getting much of

      How to Change an IP Address

      The IP address is a logical address assigned to a network card in order to establish communication over the network and identify the computer over it. Network administrators usually assign IP addresses based on certain rules and regulations. Reasons to Change an IP Address Even if someone is part of a small network routed through
