Building A Computer Network


When you are looking to build new computer networks there are things that you must look out for and there are electrical supplies that you must have. Some of the things you will need are:

The first step you will undertake is designing the whole network so that you may have an idea of what you will need and how you will go about the process. This process includes the design estimate of what will be needed in terms of the voltage that will be needed, the voltage losses, a protection line in the event that a short circuit occurs, the supply mains that will be used must be checked that they will not overheat and if they will, more are installed or they are changed. The design process will also involve calculating and choosing the protective cut-out devices (PCDs) that will be used, current time characteristics of those protective devices, the earthing system calculation and the labour involved and the amount of time that the work will take.

Then there is the wiring stage where you will need to implement the design you have come up with. It is important to use quality materials and to use certified personnel for this part of the job so that your network system can last for long and you will not have your equipment and computers damaged by sub standard work which can prove to be very costly. You may also think about putting a standby generator or power supply so that when there is a power outage or power is interrupted, your machines are still running and you have a constant uninterrupted power supply. This is especially best for industries that are crucial such as medical facilities, emergency facilities and other similar operations.

If you are want to network all the computers in your home or in a small business setting then you can use power line networking as it is cheap since it uses the electrical wiring that already exists. You may also opt to use wireless routers if you are a small outfit. If you are doing a simple connection in your home, you can do the networking by yourself without getting a professional to do it. It is simple and as long as you follow the instructions, you will be able to do it. Put the router in a central room and then plug it in and turn it on. If you are connecting a shared internet connection then connect the Ethernet cord into the internet port on the modem and then to the computer, the associate lights should go on.

Put on your computer and then run the operating system's network configuration program depending on the system that you are using. Follow the instructions on the installation wizard and you will be able to network all computers so that you can share internet access, files and the printer. If you are looking to install for a large network then you ay need the services of a professional to do it correctly.
