Helping people with computers... one answer at a time.
Read the article that everyone's commenting on.
I want to start a web server, so that it can be accessed from all parts of the world. I have an IP adress which is given from a VPN( I dont know whether it is STatic or Dynamic IP). So can i start the web server using this IP ad what are the requiremnts. Please Help me in this regard.
Yesse, u asked "Why doesn't everybody use routers instead of hubs?"
The answer could be just one, the "Cost". Hubs cheapest while Routers expensive. People buy this network things based on their spending capability and minimum needs.
Routers are only mysterious until you find good instructions. Try locating your specific model at this address for info on firewall setup and good stuff like that. Spend the money and get a router...it's for the best.
difference between windows 2k and windows 3k
There is no Windows 3k.
the easiest way i've always looked at it is that a hub and switch operates within a network and a router connects two networks (usually the lan and internet); its a little more complex than this in pratice but thats generally how it works
I have an internet connection thru satelite, can I use it on 3 computers all in the same time? I have a cnet switch but when I tried to network it thru the switch it only gets directed to the providers site and keep asking me for password for each pc. I had luck once when I put an extra lan card on the server, the built in had the net connection and the other to the port but when I plugged it to the switch it did not see it but when I plugged it on another pc it can surf the net. I also used a straight to cross connection for the two, does the wiring also affect the conectivity on any of the pc, switch or the IP's? do I need a router for this?
Excellent explanations! Very thorough.
I have a cable modem and a switch with 2 computers on the switch. I want them both to have cable internet. Can i use a switch or do i need to purchase a Router in order for both computers to get internet connectivity? My friend insists I don't need a router and that the switch should be assigning individual IPs. My research into this is leaving me doubtful of my friend's networking understanding. A regular E cable has been used between the modem and switch as well as a crossover. One computer gets internet and the other does not. Would a switch/router work better, if they exist? Thanks!
It depends on your ISP. THEY are the ones assigning IP addresses ... if they'll assign more than one, the switch will do. If they'll only assign one, then you need a router.
