We need to take exam #2 once we complete the layer 3 and 4 discussion. Lecture 10 will be the end of the layer 4 topics (tcp, udp, congestion control, and firewalls) and lab #10 is the last layer 4ish lab. I have posted a poll in the forums and I would like feed back since you are the people who need to take the exam. The options are: take home exam next week, in lab exam next week, or a take home exam during the Thanksgiving break.
Vote now and if there is overwhelming support for one option, that’s what I’ll go with. If I don’t hear from anyone I’ll post the exam as a take home exam over the break.
It appears that I deleted the clips in the left ear track at the beginning of the lecture. Please listen to this lecture as I’m not going to re-do the whole lecture just to get the first two minutes back, especially since this time is typically spent answering questions.
I’m relistening to lecture 9 now and taking notes, if I missed anything testable I’ll ensure its in lecture 10. Please email me if you have questions.
There seems to be something wrong with lecture 9, I think some of the sound clips were removed from the lecture. I’m looking into it and will post a fix tonight
We start working on layer 4. Read chapter 6.
Routing protocols and more discussion about subnetting.
I have posted labs #6 and #7 in the forums. If you are a Wednesday lab group person, please download the take home lab this week and complete it by the 28th. We will not meet on the 21st.
If you are a Monday lab person, please download the take home lab on Monday the 26th and complete it by the 2nd of November.
If you have questions about the take home lab or about when you should be in Green 111 for lab, please email, AIM, or call.
Here we start subnetting and I discuss the lab schedule changes. Remember, no lab meeting on Wednesday 21 Oct or Monday 26 Oct.
In this episode I review the correct exam answers and we start talking about IPv4 from chapter 8.
This episode talk about the 802.11 section of chapter 15 and the WAN link information from chapter 13.
Wow it’s been a busy Saturday here at the northern command bunker, but I’ve finally caught up on all the grading I’ve needed to do. All labs, quizzes, and exams that have been graded have also been entered into Blackboard and anything still showing as a dash (-) is something I do not have.
I’ve posted a brief explanation on how to calculate your current grade in the forums, head on over there to see what you’ve got so far. Don’t freak out if it’s lower than you expect. I have yet to hand out participation points and no one has taken the final exam yet, so your score will be 15-25 points lower than what you’ll end up with, provided that you continue to hand in work, get your part points in, and take the final exam. If you give up now and never show up again, what you see today is what you get, but I don’t think anyone plans on giving up yet.
Have a great break and keep an eye on my blog and the forums for news about the schedule after we get back, I may not be in state and we might have a take home lab when you get back from break.
