I will have a server which will be my central computer for all the data. The Hub will be connected to the Server which is where all the Ethernet cables from all the computers will be connected so that everyone has access to the internet as well as to the Operating System. The Network Adaptors will be hooked to all the computers in order to plug the Ethernet cables to all the computers. The computer will have the network adaptor connected and to it will be connected an Ethernet cable. The other end of the Ethernet cable will connect to the hub and then the hub will be connected to another network adaptor which is connected to another Ethernet cable which runs to the server. By having the network set up this way server will be able to set up who has access to what things on their computer by setting levels of security on each...
