Great resource, thank you very much. Worth more than every penny spent. Just a little comment: before routing basics, I think some course on tcp/ip and osi models and explanations of layers would be beneficial.
Connected Dots Online2 months ago
Thank you for the feedback, Fevzi. I will add a section on the TCP/IP and OSI models before beginning routing basics. In the meantime, if you could skip ahead to Course 7 - Layer 4 Protocols if you'd like a detailed discussion on UDP and TCP. (I do agree that an introduction to the TCP/IP and OSI models earlier would be beneficial.)

Hello! This is a fun and engaging way to learn. Thank you for providing this site.

Is there a way to reset the lessons and remove the checkmarks from certain sections for those who wish to start over or go back and relearn certain lessons?
Connected Dots Online9 months ago
Hi Landar,

Thank you for your feedback. Regarding your question, let me confirm that I understand correctly what you're asking. You can relearn any lesson right now. (Even if there is a check mark, you can still restart that lesson from the beginning.)

Are you saying that you would like to remove the check marks so that as you redo some of the lessons you can keep track of which lessons you have completed for the second time vs which lessons are yet to be completed for the second time?
Landar9 months ago
Yes Sir, that is correct. Thank you!
Connected Dots Online9 months ago
Ok, I will look into adding that capability. No guarantees on when it will be available, but I'll attempt to get it in sometime soon!
Landar9 months ago
That would be awesome, thanks again!
Connected Dots Online9 months ago
This feature is now active. Look for the "Reset Progress" link just under to course title (above the list of lessons).
Burim9 months ago
Why I cannot use the Trial part of content? Which was also for limited times?
Connected Dots Online9 months ago
Hi Burim, the intent of the trial is for you to figure out whether you like the learning/teaching style on this site.

Once you have completed enough content to get a good idea of the teaching style, the free trial ends.

You can purchase a subscription by clicking on the "Pricing" link near the top right hand corner of the page.

So I am currently taking a college course online "Intro to Networking". I am struggling, due to the extensive reading of each chapter and the never-ending vocabulary words to remember. I study 7 days a week and am at the point of burnout. I have been researching new ways of different types of learning, as I learn better by doing or watching. I came across Connected Dots and signed up. I am amazed at how well this website is put together and the depth of how it interacts with your brain. I highly recommend this for other out there pursuing their career in Networking. I would like to see this website expanded into more areas of different fields, like Cybersecurity. Thanks for helping with my future, everyone deserves a chance to learn new things.

Mateusz1 year ago
I am a software dev and I always lacked an understanding of networking which always made me frustrated when working with server infrastructure. I was trying to learn it from articles but I never got out of this confusion until I found your site! Not only does it teach me networking such that I can truly understand it, but it also made me very interested in that topic and pushed towards cloud infrastructure development where I work right now most of the time! Absolutely amazing job with the course! I recommended Connected Dots to some of my friends and they have exactly same impression. Thank you for this golden content :)

Hi Mateusz, thank you for the feedback and thank you for recommending the site to others as well!
You're welcome! Glad to hear that the content raised your interest in networking as well. Wish you all the best!

Connected Dots Online2 years ago
Thanks for the feedback, Israel. At this point, the content does not cover all of 200-301, however, it would be a good idea to go through all of the content on this site and then continue on with other resources.
Israel2 years ago
thanks, can you tell me how much of 200-301 this content covers ?
Connected Dots Online2 years ago
Hi Israel, the main portion that is not covered yet is dynamic routing - RIP, EIGRP and OSPF. The current content covers about 60-65% of what's covered in 200-301.

Rohith2 years ago
Have a question from the first course(switching basics)
so after clearing the mac address table,we cannot view any entries inside the mac address table, but after using the ping cmd from b to d i got a packet loss,previously i noticed when we ping from a-d or any computer we would send and receive all 4 packets but now after using the ping cmd i just got 1packet sent and received what is the reason for this?
Connected Dots Online2 years ago
Hi Rohith... Great observation! The reason for this is that, the system triggers a "Control+C" from the computer that is generating the Ping after it receives a response to the first ping. This is simply to save time, instead of making you sit through the visualization of the 4 ping exchanges. (By this point in the lesson, you would have already viewed the exchange of packets between the 2 computers, so the Control+C is automatically triggered simply to save time.

Michael3 years ago
Hello
I have a question on this topic;
1. How can you prevent the packets being sent to all computers on network incase it just get directed to one computer with a specific IP.
2. Can you differenciate between ARP -a and ARP -d how do the two work in terms of data movement.
Thanks
Hamza3 years ago
This is essential in order to fetch MAC Addresses of all other computers. The data being sent, and the recepient as well, both, should be clever enough to identify the destination/recepient in the first place. When packet is being recognised, it is sent back with a Physical address of that recepient's computer and hence MAC address-table is populated with an address and for the rest of the requests, the switch knows the address and can compare it data's destination address.
Hope this was of some help to you!
Michael3 years ago
Sure thanks. how can i get the pdf for the course
Hamza3 years ago
I don't know anything about pdf but I can tell you of very beautiful and basic book by Charles Severance entitled "Introduction to Networking". If you are a beginner, you should read this one. It's pdf version is free!!! (ofcourse not at amazong ;)) tho!
Connected Dots Online3 years ago
Hi Michael,
By the time you complete courses 1, 2 and 3 you will have a clear understanding of when ethernet frames are sent to all devices on a network vs only a specific device.
ARP is covered in Course 3.

Unfortunately, none of the material is available in PDF format at this time.

Hi Adebayo, please see below for a response to your question.
Adebayo3 years ago
Question....Another name for physical address?
Connected Dots Online3 years ago
If you are referring to the output of the "ipconfig /all" command, the Physical Address may also be referred to as the "hardware address". For an ethernet adapter, this is the MAC address of the adapter.

Quiverus3 years ago
I'd like to ask, what is a difference betweeen dynamic and static mac address? And what is the reason to manually add a static address into mac address table?
Quiverus3 years ago
Or in other words: when and why does someone add a static mac address to the mac address table?
Connected Dots Online3 years ago
Hi Quiverus, in general, today there are very few situations where you would need to add a static MAC address entry into a switch. One advantage of adding a static entry is that the entry remains in the MAC address table even after the switch is rebooted. In very rare cases you may have a device that mostly receives traffic (it may be some kind of a data collector) and does not send out acknowledgements or any other kind of traffic. In such a case, it is useful to manually add a static MAC address entry, otherwise this device's mac address may never get saved in the switch's MAC Address Table.
Quiverus3 years ago
Yeah, this data collector thing makes a lot of sense and in this particular case it is cruicial to add it's MAC address manually into the MAC Address Table. Thank You so much for the anwser! I'm so glad that You anwser questions like these, so everybody can understand networking even more and because of that, learning brings even more joy!
abexxs3 years ago
This is a great website to learn networking for newbies like me! Keep up the good work. After completing the courses, can you recommend any books to deepen the knowledge?

Hi Labs, you can follow all the courses on this site to get started. Even though the content on the site does not yet fully cover everything required to pass the CCNA, it is a good start to get an in-depth understanding of the topics that are covered. I would recommend following all the courses on the site and using a book to cover the content that is not covered here yet. The courses on this site are a good complement to visually understand the concepts covered in books. Hope that helps!

We are working on an update to the lesson "Introduction to Cisco Switch CLI" as per Billy's suggestion below. We have already incorporated one "Activity Break" into the lesson and are working on incorporating 2 more of these. This should be ready in a day or 2. We will advise when the update is complete.

That's awesome, thanks! I will definitely revisit that one in the future then.

I've been taking these courses and enjoying them. Thanks for this resource! My one bit of feedback so far, I think it would be beneficial if in the "Intro to Cisco Switch CLI" there was a bit more of an interactive flow to it. Having a few boxes where it's explained and then you follow it up by doing it as well yourself would help to cement that knowledge. By the time I got to the exercise section I was scrambling through my notes and forgetting a lot of what I had just read.

Hi Billy. Thanks for the feedback. That is extremely useful feedback. We will modify that particular lesson to incorporate your suggestions. Please keep the feedback coming!

My internet connection got lost in a middle of a session and now I can't go on with the unit I was doing at the time

It would be good to be able to pick up where I left off when I resume a lesson. As it is now I have to scroll through previously completed sections.

Thanks for the feedback, Ric! This is already being incorporated into some of the newer lessons. It will be incorporated into the older lesson content over time.
