    In the beginning, the Internet consisted of a single network (backbone) used by US government-funded researchers and organizations. Today, the Internet consists of more than a dozen backbones and hundreds interconnected computer networks. These networks exchange traffic with one another primarily at two public network access points in the US -- one on each coast (MAE East MAE West).

    Then the Internet grew and telecommunications companies built additional backbones to support the additional traffic. But while additional backbones provided more bandwidth, the overburdened public network access points caused major slowdowns and serious bottlenecks. To ease this congestion, backbone providers created private connections or "peering points," between their networks. This allows data to move from one network to another with much less use of the public access points.

    But as Internet traffic continues to increase, private peering points are becoming more congested and backbone providers lack the financial incentive to invest money to accommodate their competitorsí traffic. When peering points are congested, data packet loss occurs, slowing downloads and decreasing the reliability of data transmissions. This may not sound like a problem, but when you consider that even a one percent packet loss can double your customerís download time, you can see how points of congestion lead to major slowdowns in data transmission on the Internet.

    and so the need for ip6, will fix things up for a while

    dropped packets are only a real problem to those still on 56 slug modems , as adsl and cable are fast enought so request dropped traffic without delay

    soon we will all have T1 connections and someone will still bitch its too slow lol

    The problem is the more the traffic is increasi&#39; the more F*&&#036;ed everyone is, because we are all affected in the slow downs. Thus, the Backbone providers have to make the web even more interconnected...
    I think this will stop someday, when everybody moves to satallite/pc or PC/PC connections. All these D0S and DD0S attacks and other shit is increasing the traffic and making the overall slowdowns.

    the main problem with the net is all these damn windows users connecting to it. The volume of traffic generated by malicious worms attacking other machines is starting to get too much. I have never heard of any one complaining about there neighbours site getting ddos&#39;d and its slowed down there connection. I have heard many people complain about masses of network traffic being generated by worms.
    That is why isp&#39;s are now removing people from the internet who are infected with these viruses and worms. Recently we have started to see again rather more malicious viruses who&#39;s payload destroys your machine rather then just mails it out to more people. This might be the wake up to people that these viruses are to be avoided and protect yourself against them.

    ip adresses will run out but not for a while yet and ipv6 might replace it even though it does mean extra overhead. if i remember reading the specs for v6 properly it will include data in the packets about the jumps the packet has taken. this will be a big help to stop dos attacks.

    the backbone of the internet will not be allowed to be overburdened now that the internet is big business. voip is about to take off and you can bet that phone companies want to be the people to provide you with it.

    Scaremoungering is rife on the internet the imminent death of c, macs, freebsd and tcp /ip has been predicted for years and they are skill alive and kicking.

    WHY oh WHY doesn&#39;t invision include a trout slap command with it&#39;s forum software

    the largest an ip addy can be is 255.255.255.254 (255.255.255.255 is a broadcast adress)

    an ip addy consists of 4 x 8 bit pairs. 1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64, 128

    add them all up and the largest number you can make is 255.
