  • Selecting an Internet service provider

  • Working with an Internet access provider

  • Understanding the Internet backbone infrastructure

  • Connecting a network to the Internet

  • Understanding cable modems

  • Working with proxy servers

  • Using network address translation

In the previous chapter, we took a look at how the Internet has evolved over the last 30 years from a government-funded project in packet-switching technologies to the very public global network that we are familiar with today. We also discussed some of the different protocols that have come and gone (and stayed) as programmers developed different avenues and interfaces for accessing the Internet.
