Part: IX Learning How to Network Compute... > Mastering Computer and Network Conce...

Chapter 30. Mastering Computer and Network Concepts

Networks are made of computers in the same way a band is made of musicians. Each computer—and each band member—is unique, and in the right circumstances, they all work together. If they don't, then all you get is chaos.

Similarly, networks require that certain conventions be observed when computers are networked. Although each computer is unique, it nonetheless works in the same fashion as the other computers on the network. If you understand how a computer works, you'll be better prepared to understand how networks work. This chapter not only prepares you for the more challenging network chapters that follow, but also set you up to be ready for the hardware-upgrading and maintenance chapters that this book ends with.
