A network is a group of computers (often called nodes or hosts) that can share information through their interconnections. A network is made up of the following components:

Computer systems (nodes or hosts)
Transmission media--a path for electrical signals between devices
Network interfaces--devices that send and receive electrical signals
Protocols--rules or standards that describe how hosts communicate and exchange data
Despite the costs of implementation and maintenance, networks actually save organizations money by allowing them to:

Consolidate (centralize) data storage
Share peripheral devices like printers
Increase internal and external communications
Increase productivity and collaboration
There are several ways to classify networks. The following table lists several ways to describe a network.

Peer-to-Peer In a peer to peer network, the hosts provide and consume network services, and each host has the same operating system. Advantages of peer to peer networks include:
Easy implementation
Disadvantages of peer to peer networks include:
Difficult to expand (not scalable)
Difficult to support
Lack centralized control
No centralized storage

Client/Server In a client/server network, hosts have specific roles. For example, some hosts are assigned server roles which allows them to provide network resources to other hosts. Other hosts are assigned client roles which allows them to consume network resources. Unlike peer to peer networks, hosts in a client/server network have different operating systems. Advantages of client/server networks include:
Easily expanded (scalable)
Easy support
Centralized services
Easy to backup
Disadvantages of client/server networks include:
Server operating systems are expensive
Requires extensive advanced planning

Geography and Size
Local Area Network (LAN) LANs reside in a small geographic area, like in an office. A series of connected LANs, or a LAN connected across several buildings or offices, is called an internetwork.
Wide Area Network (WAN) A WAN is a group of LANs that are geographically isolated but connected to form a large internetwork. When implementing a WAN, remember to provide local access to user resources to prevent a high rate of WAN traffic.
Private A LAN or WAN for private individual or group use which may or may not be secure. Examples include home and organization (small business, corporate, institute, government) networks. Intranets and extranets, although related to the Internet, are private networks. Both an extranet and intranet are tightly controlled, and made available only to select organizations. An extranet is made available to the public and an intranet is made available internally.
Public A large collection of unrelated computers, with each node on the network having a unique address. The Internet, for example, is a public network. Because computers are unrelated and many companies and individuals share the same communication media, the public network is by nature insecure.
Baseband Baseband signalling allows one signal at a time on the network medium (cabling).
Broadband Broadband signalling divides the network medium into multiple channels, allowing several signals to traverse the medium at the same time.

Assuming this is a 900. Check the ignition lead from the dizzy to the igition pack. I once had a similar problem, and also check for ANY air pipe leaks. These cars are especially sensitive to air leaks. Look especially at the manifold pipes. Also, make sure tha intercooler pipe is secure. Is there any excessive smoking through the tailpipe?

Did you put plug wire grease on the ends of the wires? especially at the distrib. end. If it has a distributor, check the cap for cracks. One good test is to use a spray bottle, and spray the plug wires, the distributor, and see if the rpm changes. It shouldn't. If it does, you should be able to see a spark jumping someplace, and probably hear it as well

Possible areas of concern are:
  • faulty MAF (Mass Air Flo) sensor
  • bad EGR (Exhaust Gas Recirculator
  • bad TPS
It's most likely a combination of the 3 but the main cause would normally be the TPS (Throttle Positioning Sensor) which regulates engine idle speeds under different conditions.
