How to Create a Wired Network at Home
This week's episode was inspired by Tech Talker listeners Mike and Bill. In a previous podcast, I talked about switches, routers, hubs, and bridges. In that episode I mentioned why having a wired home network would be extremely useful. Say you wanted to stream movies, home videos, share fil
What 100+ Year Old House Doesn't Have a DIY Server Rack? - Old Town Home
In the past I've written about some of our home technology items that we've installed since moving into the house in 2003. From thousands of feet of structured wiring to whole house audio, I love pimping our pad with as much technology as possible without making the house look like a crazy bling'd out MTV Cribs house. Overblown home tech installation is a hobby that I really enjoy and something very unique and unexpected in a small house.Several years ago, when I could see our home tech…

TCP/IP Architecture Model: 4-Layers vs. OSI 7 Layers
TCP/IP architecture does not exactly follow the OSI model. Unfortunately, there is no universal agreement regarding how to describe TCP/IP with a layered model. It is generally agreed that TCP/IP has fewer levels (from three to five layers) than the seven layers of the OSI model. We adopt a four layers model for the TCP/IP architecture. TCP/IP architecture omits some features found under the OSI model, combines the features of some adjacent OSI layers and splits other layers apart. The…
Network Level Interoperability
The basic premise and definitions of interoperability and the three objectives to attain radio network interoperability are: 1.) compatible communications equipment, 2.) adequate signal coverage, and 3.) network scaling. More importantly, interoperability is more a function of the human factors involved in establishing the operational parameters of the network than on the technical issues themselves. This article reaches beyond the assumptions of the human factors to address one method of…
