Here are a couple of troubleshooting guides I've (just split from the original, as that was too big for a single attachment, but have) created at a couple of places I've worked - which I've used the training at an ISP and general troubleshooting I've done to write....

One is for ADSL (but can prolly be generalised for xDSL, as per the name) and the other is for Virgin connections. This is certainly good enough for getting UK internet connections sorted out, but a lot of what is in there should be transferable to other countries...

I've seen the light - it was green, flashy and attached to a Network Interface Card.

I think this is a great idea I would change a few things though. A that a switch create's networks where as a router combines networks. (And if I am wording this correctly trying to remember this of the top of my head) a switch creates separate collision domains and a router connects broadcast domains.

Fantastic in-depth article, the only this I can suggest adding is some info on how DNS and TLD's work/are administered.

I've only managed to pick up the one typo, good work wink.gif

I have been wondering, what does the "internet"'s MAIN server look like? (the machine that actually chucks around the internet to other computers)

????????

The Internet is a global system of interconnected computer networks that use the standard Internet Protocol Suite (TCP/IP) to serve billions of users worldwide. It is a network of networks that consists of millions of private, public, academic, business, and government networks, of local to global scope, that are linked by a broad array of electronic, wireless and optical networking technologies.

There is no such thing as "the internet's main server". INTERconnected NETworks...the clue is in the name..

Unless he is asking what one of the Root Servers (i.e. .com,.net,.gov...) looks like, but you are correct. INTERconnected NETworks means just that, networks connected together.

Possibly, but they were asking for the main SERVER rather than a TLD's infrastructure....
