• A domain name looks like some-name.com, another-name.org or even yet_another.ca for example.

    Those names are registered centrally for each "Top Level Domain" (TLD) such as .com , .org or .de ( "ca" being teh country code for Canada for example ).

    Once a domain name is registered it can be used to locate servers on the internet by using the Domain Name System in order to route e-mail or access web sites.

  • File format used to exchange data between disparate applications. The file format, originally
    introduced by Microsoft Excel, has become a de facto standard throughout the industry, even among non-Microsoft platforms.

  • The subnet mask is used in conjunction with the network address to determine which part of the address is the network address and which part is the host address.

    A subnet mask may look like 255.255.255.0 which means the first 3 bytes are part of the network and the last byte is the address of the host on the subnet.

    Another way to write the same network mask as above is /24 which means the 24 first bits (8 bits * 3 bytes) are part of the network.

  • The Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA) is a standard that allows devices on a home network to share information with each other.

    It is typically used to store media files (photos, music, videos...) on a central server and allow devices like connected TVs or music palyers to access these media files directly through the network.

  • An image type that simulates grayscale by varying the density of dots in a given area.

    Highly colored areas consist of a large density of dots, while lighter areas consist of a lower density of dots.

  • Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) is a security protocol specified in the IEEE 802.11 standard to provide the same level of security as the one of a wired LAN.

    WEP provides security by encrypting data sent wirelessly so that it is protected as it is transmitted from one end point to another.

    WEP is not regarded as very secure in the industry.
