Objectives:
7 of us classmates were to construct a working network with subnets using the network equipment that is provided in the lab. The instructor was only an observer (we were on our own).    

Equipment list:
3 routers, 3 switches, 4 computers and plenty of media.

Notes and observations:
The longest time was spent on configuring the network and sub-nets; which we did on the whiteboard.

Diagrams, flowcharts, and figures:
We used a whiteboard to map-out a plan to organize and implement our proposed network. There was a lot of writing for making each sub-net, gateway, IP, subnet mask, and of course, the diagram of devices. See below for the picture of finished whiteboard. 

References:
We had a sheet copy of instructions on both what was needed from the instructor, and the commands necessary to configure everything. 

Questions:
There was no questions with this lab (just hard work).

Conclusions:
Getting to apply what I learned from the previous lab and actually do it  with real equipment was both fun and it also helped plant a much better picture of whats going on in my mind. Great lab!
