Setting up a Peer-to-Peer Network Synopsis: This lab will guide you through the assembly and configurations of a simple two-computer peer-to-peer network and expansion to two benches. Upon successful completion, you will have a multiple-computer network/workgroup in which you can share files and printers. Initially, you will be working with your lab partner and then expand it to include another workgroup. The lessons learned in this lab may be applied to basic trouble shooting in all LANs from home wireless router configurations to enterprise size WANs. This Lab prepares the student for front-line basic network trouble shooting. Materials Required: This Lab will require the following: 1. At least two Windows based PC’s each equipped with at least one LAN NIC. 2. A hub/switch with a free port for each computer. 3. A patch cable for each computer. 4.

    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.
