Section 2: Network Interface Card A. The network interface card is a device that allows computers to be joined together in a Local Area Network. Computers linked together within the network use a given protocol for transmitting packets of data between different machines. The network interface card acts as the contact for the machine to both send and receive data over the Local Area Network. When designing the LAN, all computers must have a network interface card in order to connect to the LAN. B. Another type of network interface card would be a wireless network interface card. This type of card is used to connect to a radio-based computer network. This would not work in the same network as ours because it not capable of connecting to a wire-based network. C.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
