  • Certification
  • The free online course Computer Networking - Wired and Wireless Networks and Protocols introduces you in a step-by-step manner to the structure and function of wired and wireless networks and their protocols. The course begins by introducing you to cabling systems for wired networks, in particular the twisted-pair cable, and cable speeds and the cable types. You will also learn about the tools needed when making the connections between patch panels and RJ45 jacks.

    You will learn about the structure of Internet Protocol addresses in detail, including IP Ranges and their classes. You will compare and contrast the structure and function of IPv4 and IPv6 addresses and will learn about the role of Default gateway and DNS server in networking.

    Finally, the course introduces you basic TCP/IP tools such as command prompt, ipconfig and ping, and the use of these tools will be demonstrated. Next, you will be introduced to advanced TCP/IP tools such as Netstat, Pathping, Nslookup, Telnet, NbtStat and Netsh. Again, these tools and their uses will be demonstrated.

    This course will be of interest to all learners who would like to learn more about computer networking, in particular the structure and function of wired and wireless networks and their protocols. It will also be of great interest to all learners who are considering computer networking as a career or who are considering doing professional computer networking exams.
