Hi MeaganShoults12,

Any device such as computers, personal digital assistants (PDAs), cell phones, or any other network appliances is a node. It is a device connected to a computer network. If the network is on an IP, any device connected with an IP address will be a node.

Please reply if you have any further questions.
