Abstract
This thesis presents a research study of local area network compatibility issues. Today's high performance and successful LANs must use hardware and software that is compatible with the network technology used. Compatibility, for the purposes of this research paper, means the ability to interface without special adapters or other devices and directly relates to the ease of the transfer of data or programs within the network and between systems . An understanding of compatibility issues can help network users and managers diagnose and resolve connectivity problems thus saving valuable time and money that can be used toward other productive endeavors within an organization. This thesis will discuss hardware and software concepts, LAN architecture, and design issues as they relate to network compatibility. A LAN Manager' s Guide covering the above issues is included as an appendix. It is written specifically for the Administrative Sciences/Information Systems (AS/IS) computer network laboratories as supplemental information for students on LANs.
