    I understand it is a set of rules for transmitting data between computer but what exactly like in what form is it e.g. is it a digital typed document explaining the rules of transmitting data or is it internal within the computer that controls how it sends data or what? Also what does each layer in the TCP/IP protocol do? I am watching a youtube video of someone explaining it and they said the first layer is the physical layer which deals with physical network transmission like ethernet but what exactly does it do?

    5 bedroom house: Vaughn Welder lives with 4 other college students share a large, single-level house. There is a smart TV and 2 current generation gaming consoles in the living room; 3 gaming computers in 3 of the bedrooms; and each student has his/her own laptop and smartphone. They currently have DSL, connected via a modem and a 802.11g router in the living room. The gaming consoles and smart TV are connected via CAT5e cabling to the router, and all other devices are connected via WiFi. They also subscribe to cable TV for basic television viewing Vaughn and his housemates complain about laggy gameplay, lots of buffering during Netflix and video streaming, and delays loading webpages. The gaming computers and consoles experience high pings (>1000ms), and your customer and his housemates regularly rage-quit due to lag. It doesn’t seem to be as much of a problem when only 1 or 2 people are home. Laptops and smartphones often need to be used in the living room or kitchen to get a good enough signal to browse the internet or stream music, even though they have 802.11n and 802.11ac capabilities. They often use mobile data on their phones, as a result.

    never mind the reason why, if my router has an option permitting me to ban access to a specific IP address or site, how do i obtain the IP the fortnite app (for ipad) accesses to start up. Odds are i cant ban the server access but, some sort of portal or something, i probably can. Anyway, how do i get the IP addresses that an ipad would connect to while initializing and playing that game? is there a way for me to get the IPs or addresses of some other form, of their servers? Or does anyone happen to know which servers i need to block? ironically my wifi doesnt allow me to throttle the speed, in any way, otherwise i would just do that instead.

  • Verizon DHCP Release, does it cost?

    Best answer: A router reset doesn't change the bill, it just resets the router. Verizon might read this and decide to start charging in the future, but as of now you didn't do anything to Mom's bill.

    So I've gone through hell these past few weeks attempting to access my modem's web interface with zero results. I used to be able to access my modem's web interface but I now can't for whatever reason. I've reset it, rebooted it, and even replaced it. I've searched all over the internet for answers and even talked to spectrum with no luck. I can easily access my router's web interface but that does me no good as I need to open the ports I want to open on my router and my modem. The modem I have is an Arris TG1682g and I've tried 192.168.0.1 (default IP on the box) and 10.0.0.1 (recommended all over the internet) with no luck whatsoever.

  • Is it "definition wise" correct to call a router a computer?

    For example a tablet is a computer a mobile is a computer a server is a computer, in the same sense is a router a computer?
