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:

<OL TYPE=A>


[*] 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.
</OL>

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!
