When you have two or more computers connected to each other, you have a network. The purpose of a network is to enable the sharing of files and information between multiple systems. The internet could be described as a global network of networks. Computer networks can be connected through cables, such as Ethernet cables or phone lines, or wirelessly, using wireless networking cards that send and receive data through the air.

Network Address Translation (NAT):

A method of  remapping one IP address space into another by modifying network address information in the IP header of packets while they are in transit across a traffic routing device. NAT translates the IP addresses of computers in a local network to a single IP address. This address is often used by the router that connects the computers to the internet. The router can be connected to a DSL modem, cable modem, T1 line, or wireless modem. When other computers on the internet attempt to access computers within the local area network (LAN), they only see the router’s IP address. This adds an extra level of security, since the router can be configured as a firewall, only allowing authorized systems to access the computers within the network.


Any system or device connected to a network is also called a node. For example, if a network connects a file server, five computers and two printers, there are eight nodes on the network. Each device on the network has a network address, such as a MAC address (see “MAC address”), which uniquely identifies each device. This helps keep track of where data is being transferred to and from on the network.

Non-Standard Installation:

When standard installation is not possible or if your installer determines that standard installation will not give you the best connection, a non-standard option may be recommended. This includes an under eave or non-penetrating roof option.

Norton AntiVirus:

An anti-malware software developed and distributed by Symantec Corporation as part of its Norton family of computer security products. Defends against ransomware, viruses, spyware, malware and other online threats. Powered by one of the world’s largest 24×7 threat monitoring networks, Norton AntiVirus uses signatures and heuristics to identify viruses and malware. Norton AntiVirus features powerful, affordable security, and includes an email spam filtering, phishing protection and automatic “silent” updates to ensure the latest protection and provides seamless upgrade options for additional protection as your needs grow.
