Where can I locate a block diagram or simple single line diagram of a basic LAN. ie. Router, hub, telecommunication closet, work station PC, printer etc. I scanned a perfect sketch from EC magazine but must have deleted it. It was ideal to view the basic concept of a structured wiring system.

Thanks,
Frank

I can draw up a simple LAN map if you would like.

Scott-

That would be great! I still use the isolated ground drawings you made and posted several years ago.

I'll draw up something simple and post them in the Technical Reference area.
If time permits, I'll add links to this thread.

Thanks Scott. I'll be looking forward to seeing the drawing in the Technical Reference area. No need for AutoCAD.

Frank (and all other Members);

I finally got the time to draw up a simple and basic LAN map for you.

Check it out in the Technical Reference section, under the topic name of:

Basic LAN Map #1

Let me know if this is what you were looking for, and if I should post other LAN drawings.
Was thinking of including some drawings which show how Peripherals are connected to home based PCs and LAN based Workstations, plus possibly something showing Motherboards + Bus adapters and drives.

Nice job.
Is it worth it, to identify the blue connection from the router to the hub/switch be connected to a "uplink" port on the switch, or are you assuming it is autosensing?
