Bob Lafrance How to Trace an IP address http://get.smarter.com/qa/technology/trace-ip-address-3c58a5f39d2b531f?ad=semD&an=msn_s&am=broad&o=32786 This site provides an individual with the ability to trace IP addresses. It is especially useful to track scammers.

Types of Networks

http://compnetworking.about.com/od/basicnetworkingconcepts/a/network_types.htm This website was helpful because it lists the different types of networks and gives a quick description as to what they stand for. It then goes on to describe each one in greater detail. Zachary Brogna Date Added: 11/28/15

Internet Networks

http://www.igcseict.info/theory/4/types/index.html This website was helpful because it had diagrams beside the descriptions. I then found the website to be even more helpful as the next page in the tutorial is the network topography's. Date Published: Unknown Date Added: 11-28-15 Rebecca Sherr

Networks https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UXMIxCYZu8o May 29, 2014. November 28, 2015 This link allows you to get the full explained version that the chapter is not able to do. The video give a detail analysis of how networking allows computer to connect form across the world. Although i believe it is more detail than most people would need it definitely covers everything you would need to know about networking. Zachary Nader

Types of Networks

http://www.igcseict.info/theory/4/types/ Date Added 11/28/15. This website goes into detail about the different types of networks there are. The networks that this site covers are LAN, WLAN, WAN, and PAN; each explanation also shows a diagram of how they work. If you continue with this websites tutorial, it later goes on to explain the LAN topologies, networking hardware, and the internet. ~Caitlyn Lambert-Hutchinson

Open Systems and Protocols


November 28, 2015

The website here goes in depth about the Open Systems Interconnection reference model (OSI). It divides up each layer and describes in depth each one of the seven layers that was discussed in our textbook from the physical layer all the way to the application layer.
