The homework assignments give you a chance to practice the math and knoweldge skill you've read about in the text book and heard in class. The point of the homework is to help you learn these concepts. You can certainly ignore this, and it will definitely lower your grade by a full letter, but I strongly advice you complete the homework. Doing so will ensure that you can answer the questions that will appear on the midterm and final exams.
Homeworks are always due at the beginning of class on the day they are specified on the schedule. Late homework is not accepted without prior permission from the professor.

In this assignment you will use the traceroute (tracert for Windows users) program to find the route to three (3) of your favorite sites on the Internet. Draw a graph of your results, labeling each node with the IP address of the hops between your location and the destinations. The links between them should be marked with the measured delays between each link.
In addition, you will need to download Wireshark (freely available) and run it somewhere on the DU network for 30 seconds. Record all the packet types you saw and make a simple pie chart showing divisions by packet type.
