Most of us get on the internet every day and we hardly think about the process in order for us to do so. We simply click our mouse and we’re online. The process is not that simple. There are actually a lot of steps involved with getting online. Starting from your computer, it goes to the Ethernet, which is your local network. After that, the connection goes through your firewall. The firewall is what lets only the good things in and keeps the bad things out. This helps stop things like viruses from getting through. From the firewall, the connection goes to your router. This is what actually connects to the internet. We often take for granted all the complexities of the technology that we use every day.
