Our sister site, Server Fault, has a wiki of “canonical questions” that provide comprehensive answers to the most-often asked questions. We decided to create a similar list of questions and answers for Network Engineering. The questions and answers provide a single resource that visitors and members alike can get their most common questions answered.
To that end, I’ve compiled a list of questions that cover the most popular topics on Network Engineering. This is just my opinion, so feel free to recommend other questions (or categories) to be included.
OSI and TCP/IP Models
Cabling (copper and fiber optics)
MAC (Layer 2) Addressing
VLANS and Trunking
