Computer networking is filled with jargon that isn’t self-explanatory. Here’s a quick overview of many of the terms you’ll see when you glance at the network status information on any device.

We’re definitely simplifying things a bit here — this isn’t an in-depth look at any one term.

Your Internet service provider is the company that provides you with your Internet connection. For example, your ISP may be Comcast, Time Warner, or whatever other company you’re paying each month.

A local area network is a small network that’s confined to a local area. For example, your home network or an office network is a LAN.

A wide area network is a larger network that covers a wider area. Your ISP provides you with a connection to their own WAN, which connects to the Internet.

IP Address
An Internet Protocol address, or IP address, is a numerical address that corresponds to your computer on a network. When a computer wants to connect to another computer, it connects to that computer’s IP address.

IPv4 and IPv6
There are two types of IP address in common use. Older IPv4 (IP version 4) addresses are the most common, followed by newer IPv6 (IP version 6) addresses. IPv6 is necessary because we just don’t have enough IPv4 addresses for all the people and devices in the world.

A router is a device that passes traffic back and forth. You likely have a home router. It’s that router’s job to pass outgoing traffic from your local devices to the Internet, and to pass incoming traffic from the Internet to your devices.

A gateway is a device that routes traffic between networks. For example, at home, your router is your gateway. It provides a “gateway” between your LAN and WAN.

Network Address Translation, or NAT, is used by routers to share a single IP address among many devices. For example, you probably have a wireless router at home that creates a Wi-Fi network your laptops, smartphones, tablets, and other devices connect to. Your ISP provides you with a single IP address that’s reachable from anywhere on the Internet, sometimes called a public IP address.
Your router creates a LAN and assigns local IP addresses to your devices. The router then functions as a gateway. To devices outside your LAN, it appears as if you have one device (the router) using a single IP address.

The dynamic host configuration protocol allows computers to automatically request and be assigned IP addresses and other network settings. For example, when you connect your laptop or smartphone to your Wi-Fi network, your device asks the router for an IP address using DHCP and the router assigns an IP address. This simplifies things — you don’t have to set up static IP addresses manually.

A hostname is a human-readable label that points to a device connected to a network. For example, on your home network, your Windows computer’s hostname may be WINDOWSPC. Your other devices can connect to WINDOWSPC and will be pointed at that computer’s local IP address.

Domain Name
Domain names are the base part of website names. like routerlogin.wiki or google.com. Note that domain names are just another type of hostname.

The domain name system is how computers convert human-readable domain names and hostnames to numerical IP addresses. When you type routerlogin.wiki into your web browser’s address bar, your computer contacts its DNS server and the DNS server replies with the numerical IP address of How-To Geek’s server, which is what your computer connects to.
You’re likely using your ISP’s DNS servers by default, but you can use third-party DNS servers if you prefer.

Ethernet is the standard wired network technology in use almost everywhere today. If your computer is connected to a network via a cable, it’s likely using an Ethernet cable. That cable plugs into an Ethernet port on your computer.

Network Interface / Network Adapter
Your computer’s wired Ethernet connection and Wi-Fi connection are basically both network interfaces. If your laptop was connected to both a wired connection and a Wi-Fi network, each network interface would have its own IP address. Each is a different connection.
Network interfaces can also be implemented entirely in software, so they don’t always directly correspond to hardware devices.

The hostname “localhost” always corresponds to the device you’re using. This uses the loopback network interface — a network interface implemented in software — to connect directly to your own PC.

localhost actually points to the IPv4 address or the IPv6 address ::1 . Each always corresponds to the current device.

MAC Address
Each network interface has a media access control address, or MAC address — also known as a physical address. This is a unique identifier designed to identify different computers on a network. MAC addresses are usually assigned when a manufacturer creates a network device.
For example, when you visit an airport and use 30 minutes of free Wi-Fi before being kicked off and refused access to further Wi-Fi without paying, the airport’s Wi-Fi network has likely noted your device’s MAC address and is using it to track your PC and prevent you from taking advantage of more free time. MAC addresses could also be used to assign static IP addresses to specific devices, so they’d always get the same IP address when they connected to a router with DHCP.
MAC addresses are actually more fluid in practice, as you can change your network interface’s MAC address. (Yes, this means you can often gain access to more free airport Wi-Fi by changing your device’s MAC address.)

When an application wants to send or receive traffic, it has to use a numbered port between 1 to 65535. This is how you can have multiple applications on a computer using the network and each application knows which traffic is for it.
Standard HTTP uses port 80, so when you’re connecting to https://www.routerlogin.wiki, you’re really making an HTTP connection to port 80 on routerlogin.wiki. The web server software on routerlogin.wiki is listening to traffic arriving on port 80. You could attempt to connect on port 81 by plugging https://www.routerlogin.wiki:81/ into your web browser, but you wouldn’t get a response because the web server software isn’t listening on port 81.

Protocol – TCP, UDP, ICMP, etc.
Protocols are different ways of communicating over the Internet. TCP and UDP are the most common protocols. The ICMP protocol is also used, but primarily so network devices can check each other’s status. Different protocols are ideal for different types of communication.

A packet is a unit of data sent between devices. When you load a web page, your computer sends packets to the server requesting the web page and the server responds with many different packets of its own, which your computer stitches together to form the web page. The packet is the basic unit of data that computers on a network exchange.

A firewall is a piece of software or hardware that blocks certain types of traffic. For example, a firewall could block incoming traffic on a certain port or block all incoming traffic except traffic coming from a specific IP address.

The hypertext transfer protocol is the standard protocol modern web browsers and the web itself uses. FTP and BitTorrent are examples of alternative protocols.

A uniform resource locator, or URL, is also known as a web address. The current URL is displayed in your web browser’s address bar. For example, https://www.routerlogin.wiki/router-password is an URL that tells your computer to use the hypertext transfer protocol HTTP to connect to the server at routerlogin.wiki and ask for the file named article in the root directory. (The computer contacts its DNS server to find the IP address routerlogin.wiki is associated with and connects using the TCP protocol on port 80.)

That was some really nice info. but i guess it would have become great piece of resource if you had mentioned about router ip address . Explaining how all the routers have their different logging in address and also login username and password. Fox example: is for the comcast routers.

Even though a majority of the people are using the internet on a daily basis, I wonder how many of them actually do know the meaning of these terms. The likelihood of knowing the meaning or at least these words itself is so low.

What is the Nike Outlet Store origin of the "Black Friday" that Westerners say?

When it happens,Victoria Secret Clothing it brings disaster to people.Cheap Stone Island Therefore, Westerners are not only jealous of "13" days, but also have Cheap North Face Jacket "13" numbers. A typical example is that many buildings in the West do not have a 13th UGG Outlet floor.

It is said that Adam was created on Friday. He and Eve were eating the forbidden fruit on Friday.Cheap UGG Boots The days of their death were also Friday. Adam and Eve’s son Cain also killed his brother Nike Air Max Tn Abel on Black Friday.
Legend has it that Judaism is a day off Victoria Secret Outlet from Friday to Saturday and is called the Cheap Nike Shoes Sabbath.
Britain used to kill criminals on Fridays,Adidas Originals Superstar so Friday is sometimes called "hanging day."
It is precisely because of the above legend that Cheap Nike Air Max 2018 Westerners are very jealous of "13" and also avoid "Friday".UGG Outlet Store If the "13th" day coincides with "Friday",Coach Outlet it is considered more unlucky, called "Black Friday." ".
Now the meaning of "Black Friday" UGG Slippers does not seem to refer not only to the days of coincidence on the 13th and Friday.Kate Spade Outlet Many people call the "most unfortunate days" "Black Friday",Victoria Secret Outlet regardless of whether the day is 13 or not.Stone Island Hoodie Not Friday.

Not only ordinary people, but also celebrities are afraid of "13th" and "Friday."Coach Outlet Online At this time, Goethe always sleeps; Napoleon does not need soldiers, Bismarck does not sign any treaty, even if Coach Factory Outlet Store it does not touch the fundamental interests of anyone, he is not Kate Spade Outlet Store willing to sign. Former US President Hoover Roosevelt is also superstitious.The North Face Outlet Some people still remember that Roosevelt did not travel every month on the 13th,Balenciaga Sneakers although not every Friday caught up with "Friday."
In fact,Nike Outlet not all "13" are ominous signs. Some Europeans like 13: Israel was divided into 13 parts;Coach Factory the Savior is just on the 13th; there are many 13 mysterious divinations in Europe.Adidas Superstar For example, there are 13 eyes, 13 heavens,Coach Factory Outlet and God. People want to get 13 kinds of medicines.Nike Air Vapormax In ancient Egypt, in the eyes of the Maya (Indian national group), 13 symbolizes God's favor.Coach Outlet Online Some people think that 13 is not only defamatory, but also brings luck.Coach Outlet Sale The first driver to fly across the Atlantic,Fila Outlet Lindbergh, failed in the first 12 times, but succeeded in the 13th flight.
For a long time, people have done a lot of work to overcome superstition and advocate science.Balenciaga Shoes For example, in 1791, a British shipyard was preparing to build a large ship.Cheap Kate Spade Handbag The manufacturer deliberately chose to start work on the Kate Spade Outlet"13", this day is "Friday", and the name of the ship is Air Max Tn Plus also called "Friday." The day when the big ship sailed Nike Air Max for the first time was still "Friday."

Get enough RJ-45 Ethernet links to associate each system gadget and PC to the Ethernet center point. Measure the separation from every gadget to the center point and buy links with proper lengths.

Pick a router. The router will enable your organized PCs to share a Web association. You can associate the center point and modem to the router. Or on the other hand, on the off chance that you don't have enough PCs to require a center point, you can interface the PC and the modem to the router.
