Networking Concepts – the fundamentals

In my first YouTube video, I discuss 3 networking concepts:

  • Default Gateway
  • DNS Server
  • Subnet Mask

These concepts are explained in the context of a home network where a user tries to access www.google.com.

Here are the topics that I cover in this video presentation:

  1. Components of a typical home network
  2. Understanding network configurations
  3. OSI Stack view of the network
  4. Steps in communicating with DNS Server
  5. Conversion of L3 Packet to an L2 Frame
  6. How Destination MAC address is found?
  7. The role of Default Gateway or Router
  8. What happens to an income L3 packet?
