What is a computer network?

A computer network is a group of computers and devices interconnected by communication channels that allow sharing of resources and information.

What are the advantages of computer networks?

The advantages of computer networks are resource sharing, communication, cost savings, and increased efficiency.

What is a LAN?

A LAN (Local Area Network) is a computer network that spans a relatively small area, typically confined to a single building or a group of buildings.

What is a WAN?

A WAN (Wide Area Network) is a network that spans a large geographical area, such as a city, state, or country, connecting LANs and other types of networks together.

What is a network protocol?

A network protocol is a set of rules that govern communication between devices on a network.

What is TCP/IP?

TCP/IP (Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol) is a suite of communication protocols used to interconnect network devices on the internet.

What is a router?

A router is a device that forwards data packets between computer networks, typically connecting LANs and WANs.

What is a firewall?

A firewall is a network security device that monitors and controls incoming and outgoing network traffic based on predetermined security rules.

What is a VPN?

A VPN (Virtual Private Network) is a secure and encrypted connection between private networks over a public network, such as the internet.

What is network topology?

Network topology refers to the physical or logical layout of a computer network, including the devices, connections, and nodes that make up the network.

What is bandwidth?

Bandwidth is the maximum amount of data that can be transmitted over a network or communication channel in a given amount of time.

What is latency?

Latency is the time delay between the sending and receiving of data over a network or communication channel.

What is a DNS server?

A DNS (Domain Name System) server is a network device that translates domain names into IP addresses, allowing devices to communicate with each other over the internet.

What is network security?

Network security refers to the protection of a computer network from unauthorized access, attacks, or intrusion.

What is network monitoring?

Network monitoring refers to the process of constantly monitoring a computer network for performance, security, and other issues.
