Practical knowledge

  1. Aug 18, 2014 #1
    hey everyone,
    I`m a b.tech student in electronics &communication.though I`m okay with theory but I feel I`m way behind in practical knowledge and skills.
    my college doesn`t provide us with proper laboratory facilities.so,is there any way I can achieve practical knowledge??

    A couple of choices come to mind:
    - get an internship in a networking provider (AT&T, Time Warner, or your local provider of internet)
    - see if you can work with the tech who manages your school's network.
    - build one your self between a couple of cheap computers and a router (raspberry pi for example) and explore network management
    - use networking tools to explore your internet connection (careful here network admins may not like port scans and other more invasive networking tools)
