Network Design SUPPORT

If you're new to the world of networking, the resources provided on general networking and CobraNet terminology will get you started. You can also refer to the Ethernet Overview document and the Ethernet and Network Links section to get a better feel for the infrastructure and general principles of Ethernet.

After that, be sure to review the switched vs. repeater network section. Although we highly recommend the use of switches in all cases, this page will tell you if the use of repeater hubs would be an acceptable alternate for your network design.
