NETWORK

When multiple computers in a single household share the same Internet connection, it is considered a basic form of network infrastructure, whether or not the computers also share information with each other. The Internet itself is a more advanced network infrastructure, in which individual systems access a global network that houses information on various systems, and allows access using web standards and protocols, most commonly framed as web addresses, also known as URLs.

NETWORK INFRASTRUCTURE

After reading above and below, ask yourself one question. Do I understand all these? If you do, then you probably don’t need someone to setup your network. But if you don’t completely understand or you don’t have the time, then let us do the work for you.

The simplest form of network infrastructure typically consists of one or more computers, a network or Internet connection, and a hub to both link the computers to the network connection and tie the various systems to each other. The hub merely links the computers, but does not limit data flow to or from any one system. To control or limit access between systems and regulate information flow, a switch replaces the hub to create network protocols that define how the systems communicate with each other. To allow the network created by these systems to communicate to others, via the network connection, requires a router, which bridges the networks and basically provides a common language for data exchange, according to the rules of each network.

TIPS

At Infinity Gigabyte technologies, your security is of paramount importance. Please read tips below.

Network Router

Network routers are essentially the heart of your network. They provide you a central access point hub to the world wide web, and the first line of defense to deter hackers trying to penetrate your network by providing a firewall.

Firewall

In computing, a firewall is a network security system that monitors and controls the incoming and outgoing network traffic based on predetermined security rules. A firewall typically establishes a barrier between a trusted, secure internal network and another outside network, such as the Internet, that is assumed to not be secure or trusted. Firewalls are often categorized as either network firewalls or host-based firewalls. Network firewalls are a software appliance running on general purpose hardware or hardware-based firewall computer appliances that filter traffic between two or more networks. Host-based firewalls provide a layer of software on one host that controls network traffic in and out of that single machine.Firewall appliances may also offer other functionality to the internal network they protect such as acting as a DHCP or VPN server for that network.

Firewalls are provided by your router in a home based network. Its always a good idea to login to your router and change the default admin password for your router, and create a guest network for guests that would like to use your network.
