Computer class (networking/networks) wan, lan,


THIS ASSIGNMENT IS 90 percent done but would someone in computers/networking to reassure and finish my work. Please include all additional security measures that you know and modify the diagram that created (star topology).




You were selected to design a small peer-to-peer network for a new facility which has three offices, two conference rooms, a networked printer and a receptionist computer. Each desk space must have a wired network connection for a computer as well as wireless access for mobile devices. Using a software tool of your choice, create a basic diagram that depicts a star network topology with a switch as the central communications node. The focus here is on the network communications equipment so include only that equipment and end nodes on the network.


When you submit your plan, include a brief (1-2 paragraphs) description of your design in the assignment comments. State any assumptions you’ve made about the kind of work being done, the demands the people in the office will put on the network or how they’ll use it, and how that influenced your design. For example, if this is a small streaming video-based news service, they probably need more performance from the network and their ISP than a small rental property management office might. Why




  • Specify internet connection via service provider

  • Include hardware devices that:

    • connect your LAN to the ISP (e.g. modem)

    • connect your network to other networks (router)

    • enable end nodes to connect to the network (switch)

  • Include type of cable media (be specific)

  • Label all items (brand and model names are acceptable but not required)

  • Depict topology in the diagram.

  • All work must be original and not taken from Internet sources.

  • Save your diagram as an image (.jpg or .jpeg) and insert this image into your Word document with the network description.
