The Inner Workings of the Internet – How Internet is organized and structured

The Inner Workings of the Internet   When a link is clicked on a flow of information is created. The information is then sent and “packaged” by the IP. The packages are known as packets which have a limited size. It then must be decided on how to divide in the information and how to package it. Each packet will get a label that contains information. Packets that are going out across the internet get a special address for the proxy server. The packet then gets latched onto your local area network (LAN). The LAN is used to connect everything on the network together to exchange information within the physical walls of the building. The traffic of information that goes across the LAN is uncontrolled place because there are all sorts of different packets going across the LAN.   The router is a device that essentially plucks certain packets off the highway of information and places them on a different network. The router will identify which packets go where by the address that is on each packet. As the packets leave the router they head into the corporate internet and head for the router switch. The router switch is a bit more efficient than the router and routes the packets on their way.       The packets are sent to be picked up by the proxy. The proxy works like a middle man for companies to lessen the load of their internet connection and for security reasons. The proxy opens the packets and looks for the web address(URL). If the package is acceptable the packet is then sent...
