I will then educate you on how to setup and control your network once it is created and setup properly. I will of course go into more depth in each paragraph. By the time I am done you will have and understand terms and procedures for setting up and running their network.

You can have either a Dynamic IP address, this is an IP address that changes on a regular basis, or a Static IP address, this can be a single IP or a large block of several IPs that your service provider sell you, these never change. I would suggest a Static IP block, especially if you are using a POS (Point of Sale) device, or are running several servers for Email and Webhosting or your Security System, like surveillance cameras. Because you can remote into your security cameras from a location outside of your building, like at home or while on vacation somewhere via a smartphone app or through an Internet connection at your hotel or rental property. These non-changing IP addresses come in...
