The Internet has become an essential component of our work and social lives. We browse the web, use social media, check e-mails, make VoIP phone calls, and have video conferences via computers. All of these applications are made possible by networking computers together, and this complex network of computers is usually referred to as the Internet. This course is designed to give you an understanding of how networks, from in-home local area networks, or LANs, to the massive and global Internet, are built and how they allow us to use computers to share information and communicate with one another. By the end of this 12-hour course, you will be able to select appropriate wide and local area network services and perform configuration and troubleshooting of your network.
