In 2011 over 2 billion people where connected to the Internet (Wiki),and over the past 10 years the Internet has become just as important as TV, radio, and the telephone.
Daily internet usage continues to grow and Internet access is vital to our daily lives.
The first wave of the Internet involved connecting people to each other and people to information.
The next wave of the Internet will involve connecting the physical world to the Internet, and machines to each other.
With the growing use of Internet/network enabled devices there will a growing need for almost everyone to have a basic understanding of networking so that they can setup, configure, and use them.
To get you started I’ve created a short basic networking course that will introduce you to the basic networking technologies and how they work on a network.
The Internet is a global communications network built around the technology developed in the 1960s by ARPA (later DARPA) for the United states Government and revolves around TCP/IP protocols.
The Internet is built around the TCP/IPprotocol suite. which consists of many protocols like IP,TCP,HTTP,FTP etc,
In addition services like DNS,DHCP etc have been developed that make networking and using the Internet, and the web easier . See
