How does the Internetwork?

A global network of computers make up the internet. Because of this, the internet must have an ip (internet protocol) address. Also, each computer must have an ip address. An ip address is a way of identifying each computer. Depending on your ISP (internet service provider), you may have either a static or dynamic ip address. This series of numbers, is the way by which you receive information on your computer. In a way, the internet is like the post office.
