A network consists of two kinds of components- namely, 'nodes', and 'lines of communication'. The allocated tasks for the nodes are administering the network protocols and enabling switching capabilities. It is basically a computer, meant for running particular network software. The lines of communication are entitled to form various shapes and sizes, even if they are operating in the same network. Radio channels, telephone lines, optical fiber, and copper wire cables, are some of the examples of the above case.
A different line of communication tends to link a host to the network, and also, with one of the nodes. In general, numerous hosts are connected to one particular node. If we view the entire network from a host's angle, it would appear to be a black box, to which several other hosts are linked. The network assigns a unique address to each and every host. A host needs to know the address of another host, in order to communicate with the same. The nodes act as the passage for communication between two or more hosts. Moreover, it determines the procedure of routing messages over the network.
Networking Problems, & their Solutions
Anything related to networking involves highly technical stuffs. Thus, the problems related to networks and networking can be quite confusing and perplexing for a common end user or any other non technical user. Some of the common problems surrounding networking are Booting or Image code loading problems, Desktop Network Interface problems, Routing problems, FDDI problems, Ethernet problems, Terminal Server problems, Token Ring Problems, Router password recovery problems, and so on.
In order to find out the solutions to all these problems, you need to have a good knowledge on networking. But it may not be possible in most cases. Therefore, the best antidote to all these issues is remote network support, as it is beneficial to both household users, as well as, business firms. Remote network support ensures instant solutions to all kinds of network problems, and that too without having to physically visit the user's place. Thus, it frees the household users from the burden of carrying their machines to service centers, or, of having to wait for weeks for the onsite tech support service provider to arrive.
As far as the business firms are concerned, network support service relieves them from the huge cost of maintaining an internal tech support team. All they have to do is make a phone call to a tech support service provider, and resolve all their technical issues within a matter of few minutes.
