3.2.2 Ring Pros: Easy to access/transmit data. Doesn't require server and works better than a star. Cons: One malfunctioning node can stop the whole network. It is slower than Ethernet too. Moving, adding, and changing devices can be straining.
3.2.3 Bus Pros: If one node fails, the others are not affected. Simple and easy to set up. Cons: If the cable malfunctions, the network goes down. Cables and number of nodes are limited.
3.2.4 Hierarchial Cons: If one node fails, the others fail as well Pros: Data can be easily shared as all nodes are interconnected to one another.
