Wireless Routers and Access Points from companies like Linksys and Netgear allow your workstations to access the network and Internet without running wires.
Network switches connect multiple workstations together. Unlike Hubs, they do not send data to all points on the network, but instead send data only to the sending and receiving workstations.
Network Hubs provide ports to extend the number of workstations that can be linked together in a network.
Similar to a Hub for a Token Ring network, the MAU provides additional functionality by closing the loop in a token ring if the workstation connected should fail.
Network Interface Cards
A Network Interface Card is typically installed inside a workstation in a PCI slot and provides for access to a 10/100/1000 Twisted Pair Ethernet network.
A Bridge is a network device that links two separate network segments and prevents data from one side from crossing over to the other side unless the data is destined for the other segment.
A Router connects two or more networks, providing for IP address translation (typically NAT) and limited firewall functionality.
A Gateway device combines the functions of a simple two-network router and a switch and is used to connect two different networks (typically a LAN and the Internet)
A Repeater extends the distance of a network by amplifying the signals between two physically distant networks.
A Transceiver is used in certain types of networks to transfer 5volt data signals into the appropriate signals for the network. In Ethernet 10/100/1000 Twisted Pair networks, the transceiver is part of the Network Interface Card.
A Firewall is a dedicated security device that prevents unauthorized access (hackers, viruses, etc.) from and to a network by blocking the data according to rules set up in its configuration.
Ethernet is a protocol defining how computers communicate on an Ethernet network. Typically an Ethernet network is run over a 10/100/1000BaseT network (twisted pair).
A Token Ring network is a protocol defined by IBM in which data travels in a logical "ring" throughout the network.
DSL is a technology that provides for high speed (broadband) access to the Internet over phone lines, but unlike Dial Up it does NOT prevent use of the phone line for normal voice calls.
ISDN is an older technology that provides higher speed data (and Internet) traffic over phone lines but typically only 2 times faster than dial up.
Frame Relay is a high speed (broadband) method of delivering data using phone lines that can provide DSL-like speeds and is not distance-sensitive like DSL.
T1 is another broadband data access method that provides 1.544Mbps data over existing phone lines and is not distance-sensitive like DSL.
Wireless networks use radio frequency to transmit data over relatively short distances and are often used to provide data capability throughout a home or small office without the requirments of cable. Security on Wireless networks is a must, however, as a non-secured wireless network can be easily accessed from any nearby geographic location.
