The tutorial is showing its age.  There are a number of networking technologies discussed that are no longer in common usage.  For instance, modems are one of the links, but broadband isn't mentioned at all.  Hubs are also a link while switches are the most commonly used connectivity device nowadays.  The tutorial material needs to be updated and refurbished.

Technical Remarks:

A number of the links are broken and a handful of the images are missing.
