While this in theory might be a good idea - in practice your 2 links so far are not very informative or worthy of links too.

 

How is a thread with a link to a speed test site, where everyone posts theirs -- its a how many stairs/windows thread.  Sure an the hell is not "internet basics". Or even good at explaining what a speed test is for that matter.

 

As to that good network configuration thread -- what?  That is a guy asking such a loaded question, and then getting hammered for more information..

 

A better link for speedtest would be just the wiki article http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Speedtest.net

 

As to network -- this would be a better first link than that nonsense thread http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Computer_network

Your welcome I guess - but really not sure speed testing should go there, but since "internet basics" is such a broad topic I guess you could fit most anything in there ;)

 

You will want to redo your link title for the network configuration - that is not a good anything, its just a link to information of what makes up a network.

 

I will try and come up with some links for your topics.  Under Security, which I would not really call basics.. I would prob remove the basics from all the topics except for internet and network and security would be just that.. And FAQ kind of redundant since most all of these are FAQ ;)

 

Under security for a start

http://www.us-cert.gov/

http://osvdb.org/

http://www.sans.org/

http://nvd.nist.gov/

http://cve.mitre.org/

 

You might want some sub topics under Security and Networking and even Internet, etc.

 

Under security sub sections you might have links to tools - some starters

http://nmap.org/

http://www.tenable.com/products/nessus

http://ettercap.github.io/ettercap/

http://www.wireshark.org/

 

Basic users and window users might want to take a look at for tools

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-US/security/cc184924.aspx

http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=39273

 

This could end up being really a lot of links, sine the topic is wide open ;)  And we could have whole sections on 1 specific protocol such as dns ;)

Hi,

 

Here is one of the best monitoring opensource system that I have came across. I installed at home and I am in love with it. Just configure SNMP and you're good to go. It pulls everything.

 

Observium

 

I am going to mention this as well, probably most of you will use it, it's IPAM IP managemnet free.. I have been using it for almost 2 years and it's absolutely great.

 

PHPIPam

 

Enjoy my finds. :P
