Wikipedia:WikiProject Computing/Computer networking task force
This is computer networking task force, a place created to better organize information in articles related to computer networking. If you would like to help, please add your username at the bottom of the § Participants section below and take a look at the § Tasks section for improvement ideas.
Covering all articles related to computer networking. Networks rely heavily on protocols, and that is the primary focus, but it should also include models (e.g., OSI model), hardware, and applications. Like all good Wikipedia articles, each computer networking article should explain the basics (such as what an IP address is) as well as the technical details (such as packet structure).

The general style guide for computing articles, Wikipedia:Manual of Style/Computing, should be followed.
Each networking technology article should include a minimum set of standard elements, as follows:
- General description
- References and external links. cite sources!
- Appropriate categorization. See Wikipedia:Categorization.
Here are a few ideas for how to organize articles. These do not necessarily have to correspond to the actual section headers and divisions, and they are no more than suggestions. Conform to them to help improve the article in question.
A protocol-specific article:
- History of the protocol
- Who started it
- When was it started
- What revisions were there
- Any related or defining RFCs?
- What other protocols were kept in mind when designing this protocol? (e.g., TCP to SCTP)
- Packet structure
- Any related technical discussions (e.g., fragmentation and reassembly for IPv4)
A hardware-specific article:
- What is it used for (what protocols, versions, etc.)
- Hardware features
- List of manufacturers & models

WP 1.0 Assessed ArticlesEdit
|Computer networking articles by quality and importance|
- 0 articles in Category:Computer networking articles needing expert attention.
- Interior Gateway Protocol: The link state vs. distance vector material is not appropriate here, because those ideas are not specific to IGPs. Maybe merge the remaining material (of which there is very little) into routing protocol? Or can people envision more material for this article? --Nethgirb 20:03, 29 July 2007 (UTC)
- Access network: This article might be of interest to the networking task force. Please consider triage. Hvaara T∞C 11:54, 5 December 2014 (UTC)
- Improve accessibility and reduce length of Communications protocol ~KvnG 17:03, 8 December 2014 (UTC)
- Improve Ethernet toward good article based on reviewer suggestions ~Kvng (talk) 14:37, 20 November 2015 (UTC)
- Network scheduler improvements as discussed on talk page ~Kvng (talk) 14:37, 20 November 2015 (UTC)
- Tagging articles for the project in relevant categories.
- WP 1.0 Assessment of both quality and importance.
- Improving quality and getting a few articles to FA and GA articles.
- Outreach : Attract new members who might be interested and possibly start a bi-monthly newsletter.
