Resource summary

Ring Network
  1. Peer to peer as there is no server
    1. All computers are arranged in a circle
      1. Data sent by one computer passes around the ring until it reaches the correct computer
      2. Advantages
        1. Network is not dependent on one computer
          1. Each computer has equal status so no one computer can 'hog' the network
          2. Disadvantages
            1. A break in communication (wire or wireless) means the whole network goes down
              1. Faults are difficult to locate
                1. Impossible to keep network running when new equipment is added or removed
