Topologies refer to the layout of the computers on a network.

topology that I recommend for By the Humber Recruitment Agency is a bus. I recommend this because...........

There are two types of network. A client server and peer to peer. I recommend a client server because it has a good security so you and your colleagues can access this without random people accessing it,

Each person has a individual username and password, a network administrator can set a variation levels of access for users, restricting what they can do on the network.

if a server goes offline then all of the resources on the server are unavailable.

A user will be able to use any client station in the network to access their files.

since all the files are stored centrally it is an easier job back up each server in the network.

print servers and web servers can be shared easily.

expensive servers and a network operating system required.

The components that would be needed to connect to the network (both local area and wider area) include:


Network interface card-  is installed in a computer so that it can be connected to a network, Network interface cards provide a dedicated, permanent connection to the network.

HUB-  Hubs are mostly used to connect segments of a LAN A hub contains multiple ports.

Switch- A switch is similar to a hub but can switch and direct infomation to a computer,

coaxial cable- this is widely used for computer networks such as Ethernet.


WIFI- this allows computer, smartphones or other devices to connect to the internet or communicate with another wireless device within a particular area,

Internet browser- this is a software application for retrieving, presenting infomation, while accessing all the infomation on the web.

Internet service provider- An internet service provider is a company such as virgin media, sky and others!, usually for a fee, the most common is a broadband connection.

Using the network to manage resources    

User logins- All users have their own logins for their own privacy, and for the security of their work and data.

Shared hardware resources- in computing a share resource or network share, is a computer resource made accessible from one host to other host on a computer network.

share storage-  share storage is a medium accessible by all of the subscribers in a network, intended for file storage and allowing simultaneous access by multiple subscribers without the need to duplicate files to their computers.

shared security- the company could share security by using the server to download security software to all computer running on the network.

there are possible wired and wireless network issues:

Problems]                                                                                    [solution

corrupted or incompatible drives.                                         then you need to get the corrupt                                                                                                         device repaired or if you have to                                                                                                          purchase a new one, if its                                                                                                                      incomparable then you will have                                                                                                        to buy a new one.
