Introduction

Basic Internet The internet is a system that allows you to play, listen, read, send, receive and download files. The internet is so easy to use and as I have broadband this encourages me to use the internet because I can always rely on it being fast and good quality. Many people use the internet as a means of keeping in touch; E-Mail is great because you can write to people who may be over the other side of the world. You don't even have to leave the comfort of your own home to do this. One of the greatest things about the internet is the search engines. You type in what you are looking for it will come up with a list of websites which will help you with what you want to find. ...read more.

* It makes sure that information does make it to the intended destination. In performing these two jobs, a router is extremely useful in dealing with two separate computer networks. It joins the two networks, passing information from one to the other. It also protects the networks from one another, preventing the traffic on one from unnecessarily spilling over to the other. Regardless of how many networks are attached, the basic operation and function of the router remains the same. Since the Internet is one huge network made up of tens of thousands of smaller networks, its use of routers is an absolute necessity. The internet is made up of networks (big and small). Networks are a group of computers that are interconnected by telephone wires (or other means) ...read more.

Conclusion

Also being an avid football supporter it is good for me because I can log onto the website and it will update me on the latest news. The biggest problem I find is when I go away I usually don't buy a newspaper and when I get back home I only get the brand new news and I don't know anything about what ha happened in the last week. S.P.A.M is another bad thing about the internet; this is junk mail which will be sent to your E-Mail address although these days you can get some magnificent filters for junk mail. Another common problem with the internet is that viruses can be transmitted via the internet which can cause the internet being down for a day or two. The viruses can also lead to all documents being deleted or even the computer not being able to be turned on ...read more.

Response to the question

In summary, the report is quite good. The report states how the internet is used, and the benefits/drawbacks of the internet. However some aren't are missing detail and this could be improved to acquire high marks. The student states 'You type in what your looking for', however this is lacking detail. The report should include 'A user is able to enter a search term and press the 'Search' button to receive listings of their websites which match the term used by the user'.

Level of analysis

The report states that the internet could be used quite quickly in terms of speed due to broadband. However why is this? The student could include 'By having broadband, there are a number ISP's (Internet Service Providers) which offer high quality internet access.' In addition, the report could include examples of the speeds that ISP's offer, such as Virgin Media might offer 100MB/s for £25.00 per month.

Quality of writing

The report states the term 'Internet', however I believe that this isn't fully explained. The Internet is a network of web pages, which allows a user to connect to the network if there have a computer device which is connected to the internet (usually via an ISP - Internet Service Provider). The report states the term 'E-Mail', which ins't explained within the report. All technical terms within the report should be explained to allow the examiner to understand with ease.
