Basic LAN Map #1
The following image describes a very basic setup for a simple LAN
(Local Area Network).
The image shows a simple 10/100 BASE T type Ethernet Network (Star Topology)
LAN has the following nodes/Peripheral items connected:
[*] WAN connections to other networks via direct connection at the Router, plus through Telco lines via the bridge,
[*] One File/Server machine,
[*] One Laser Printer - LAN PRINTER 1,
[*] One PLOTTER - also a LAN Printer,
[*] Three Workstations without a Local Printer attached - they print to the LAN PRINTER or to the PLOTTER,
[*] One Workstation with a connected Local Printer - may also print to LAN PRINTER and PLOTTER,
[*] One Eight Port Patch Bay,
[*] One 10/100 MBPS Switch/Hub.
Items are connected via CAT-5e or CAT-6 UTP Cable from Patch Bay to Mod. Jacks (outlets).
From Mod. Jacks to machines/equipment, or between Patch Bay and Switch: CAT-5e/CAT-6 UTP Patch Cords.
Let me know if this drawing is OK, and if I should post additionals!
