Part I: Networking Basics 33 34 Part I: Networking Basics Star Topology In a star topology, the computers on the network connect to a centralized connectivity device called a hub. 6. Star LANs also use the same type of wait-and-listen strategy to access data or send data as characterized by the bus topology. 6. The star topology uses a hub as the central connection point for the computers on the LAN. Because the star topology uses a separate cable connection for each computer on the network, star networks are easily expandable, with the main limiting factor being the number of ports available on the hub (although hubs can easily be daisy-chained together to increase the number of ports available).

Computer hardware considerations were also discussed. • Network interface cards (NICs) supply the connection between the computer and the network's physical medium. The NIC supplies the MAC or hardware address that is used to identify a computer on the network. • Internetworking devices are used to connect network computers and other devices. Hubs, bridges, switches, and routers are devices that provide different strategies for connecting PCs and managing (or in the case of a hub, not managing) the network bandwidth.

The speed of data moving along the bus is measured in megahertz (MHz). Although 66MHz was once considered fast for the bus speed of a motherboard, motherboard manufacturers quickly provided motherboards with bus speeds of a 100 to 133MHz. Motherboard bus speed has continued to increase with each new motherboard and chip set. There are motherboards now available that provide bus speeds in excess of 500MHz. At one time the motherboard would never have been considered the limiting factor in a PC configuration but with advances in PC memory and processors, a computer with an older motherboard may only provide few options as far as upgrading; meaning newer memory modules and processors may not be compatible with a legacy motherboard.
