Router Networking Cookbook for inclined Tech-Savvy Peeps

Howdy folks ! I’m gonna laconically describe few tech jargon’s and what they mean in so called Uber cool fashion, So without wasting any time Joe let’s Digg in(pun intended) this post is just inflated /*_^\

Network address translation (NAT) is a method of remapping one IP address space into another by modifying network address information in the IP header of packets while they are in transit across a traffic routing device. There are two types Static & Dynamic NAT.

Port forwarding: In computer networking, port forwarding or port mapping is an application of network address translation (NAT) that redirects a communication request from one address and port number combination to another while the packets are traversing a network gateway, such as a router or firewall

MAC address: A media access control address (MAC address) of a device is a unique identifier assigned to a network interface controller (NIC). A MAC address may be referred to as the burned-in address, and is also known as an Ethernet hardware address, hardware address, and physical address

Port triggering is a process through which a specific outgoing traffic/process targeted toward a port on an external computer/server sends or communicates back to the internal/host node’s port.

Channel frequency setting: Selecting the proper WiFi channel can significantly improve your WiFi coverage and performance. In the 2.4 GHz band, 1, 6, and 11 are the only non-overlapping channels. Selecting one or more of these channels is an important part of setting up your network correctly.

Difference b/w 2.4 GHz & 5 GHz WiFi : The primary differences between the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz wireless frequencies are range and bandwidth. 5 GHz provides faster data rates at a shorter distance. 2.4 GHz offers coverage for farther distances, but may perform at slower speeds.

Last but not the least, as of time of writing I’m including this for CMD in Windows, many more cool updates to come and this post shall be filled in so stay tuned to extract the mellow juice.
