20190608 The Internet (interconnected networks) is the backbone of all communications and most services used today. Home, local and international networks provide access to resources beyond the local desktop computer, laptop, smartphone, or thing (as in the internet of things). Most computers (including smartphones) connect either through Ethernet (named in recognition of the nebulous aether world out there) whereby the connection is by wire, or through WiFi (as in HiFi but for computers) to connect wirelessly. On connecting to the Internet a unique address, called the IP address (Internet Protocol), is assigned to the computer.
