Computer Networking Systems II

Power Standards

CNSII will take a more detailed look at Ethernet LANs and Switched Ethernet.  Students will study the design of LANSs and more advanced router configuration as well as several Wide Area Network technologies, which connect LANs.  The IBM compatible PC will be examined.  Further study of troubleshooting and configuration of operating systems will be pursued in year two.
