    After taking the input from everyone, reworking, adding/modifting some sections, I gave the document to my wife. She has now done her red pen magic.

    I submit the final draft of the General Home Networking document.

    Unless someone feels that there are changes that need to be made, I see no reason why the doc cannot be moved live.

    NAT & PAT - you explain a little about PAT but don't say anything about NAT. You might give an equally brief explanation about network address translation, and how your local router typically does this task allowing all of the devices on your home network (with 192.168.x.x type addresses) to access the internet.

    Open Air paragraph: Specialized antennas ... can enable TO use of Wi-Fi ... should be THE use of Wi-Fi...

    Data paragraph: ... there are two types of data that will be... should be that WE will be...

    Delay paragraph: ...nothing can move fast than the speed... should be FASTER

    Propagation delay paragraph (2nd para): ...but it will still take the same amount of time to for the... delete TO

    Special Bonus Section, 2nd para: B1 will receive the broadcst and sent it out... SEND it out.

    My special bonus section: There are a couple of "in to" that should be "into".

    Otherwise, excellent document. I learned from it.

    For NAT/PAT: I only talk about PAT because, regardless of how it is labeled in the home router, it is actually PAT. Strictly speaking NAT required 1:1 private to public IPs. I will, however, make note of that. As for how it works, I am reluctant to do so as going in to more detail may cause one's eyes to glass over. I think it is important to know that it does it but not the nitty gritty of how it does it.

    Other comments: I will adjust.

    Thank you. If you want more in depth info on a specific topic, PM me.

    Thanks,

    Jason

    Scott,

    Do you see any reason not to go live with the doc?

    I'll read it over the next day. We are preparing a post that will contain links to each document all in one post so they are easy to find. This will be similar to the First Look posts that have the links to those.

    Jason would you please remove the first lines?

    "*This primer is written with a focus on the DirecTV integration to a home network, but most will also
    equally apply to Dish Network and generic MoCA deployments.
    *I am still relatively new to MoCA (and by extension, DECA). As I learn more I will correct/add to the
    document in those areas."

    Then would you see if you can adjust some of the page breaks to try and start each page with a new topic? (If Possible)

    Finally would you please post the final .docx so I can store it at the site?


    Thanks and it was nice to meet you last week.

    Portland,...
    The title needs to be all caps but other than that, I think it looks really good.

    This is going to be a great resource!
