      WEP Key Passphrase

      A wireless network key is an encryption key for that prevents unauthorized users from accessing a specific wireless network. The user creates wireless network keys, which either a wireless router or a computer that is connected to that wireless router can manage. Wireless network keys can be any length greater than eight characters and can

    • Fiber Optic Patch Panel

      Fiber Optic Patch Panel

      Fiber optic patch panel, also known as the fiber distribution panel, is used mainly in fiber optic cable management. It helps network technicians in minimizing the clutter of wires when setting up fiber optic cables. It terminates the fiber optic cable while providing access to the cable’s individual fibers for cross connection. They are also

    • Interior Gateway Routing Protocol

      Interior Gateway Routing Protocol

      The Interior Gateway Routing Protocol (IGRP) is a network routing protocol that is designed to enable routing inside of an Autonomous System (AS). Cisco developed this protocol in the late 1980s in response to the existing Routing Information Protocol’s (RIP) shortcomings. As Cisco routers became more popular, a number of large networks began using IGRP,

    • Distance Vector Routing Protocol

      Distance Vector Routing Protocol

      Routing Protocols Whenever different networks connect with each other to communicate and to share the data and resources, it is called internetworking. For internetworking, routers must be used on each network or at backbone to route the packets. To route a packet, a router needs to know: Destination Addresses Sources it can learn from Possible

      Fiber Optics

      Fiber optic technology makes use of light to carry digital signals via optical cables. Fiber optic cables are very thin glass wires made from extremely pure optical glass. This technology is based on the concept of light reflection. In the case of fiber optics technology, light carrying digital signals is reflected inside the optical cable

      RG-11

      Coaxial cables are necessary for rooftop antennas and dish antennas in order to provide crystal-clear sound and audio input. RG-11 bands typically have 75-ohm wires made of copper. Polyethylene dielectric makes sure that there is minimal loss of picture and sound while the antenna receives audio or video feeds. Most users of the RG-11 have

      How to Perform a DNS Lookup

      DNS, Domain Name System, is a complex hierarchical system which helps map Internet addresses with their respective machines over the World Wide Web. When a domain is created and hosted, a variety of information is linked with it. DNS Lookup is generally a process of digging out this related information for a specified domain name.

      DSL vs Cable Modem

      Two of the most popular technologies that offer speedy access to the World Wide Web are DSL broadband and the cable modem. There are several reasons why this is the case and the first one is that both of these Internet connections are considerably faster than the standard dialup connections. However, when you compare the
