Abstract:

The Naval Postgraduate School has implemented a 3Com Etherseries baseband Ethernet Local Area Network LAN. The purpose of this thesis is to explore the requirements and protocols required in the implementation of an Ethernet LAN, discuss the demands of 3Coms Etherseries network as regards hardware and software, and development a comprehensive students user manual. The purpose of a LAN has evolved from just sharing expensive computer peripherals laser printers, hard disks, and software to reduce costs. Robert Metcalfe, a co-inventor of Ethernet, subscribes to the new view that the purpose of LANs is to share information creating work group information system Reprints.
