%X A home network comprising many heterogeneous devices
requires a scaleable interconnect capable of satisfying the
often vastly different network resource demands of the
devices. In addition, it is likely that over time the
configuration of the network will change as new devices are
added to the network and older ones removed or replaced.
While it is acceptable for enterprise networks to be managed
by a trained network administrator it is unreasonable to
expect a home owner to have such expertise. Consequently, a
free topology network coupled with a capacity for plug and
play that allows nodes to be added anywhere, and at any time
without interruption to the operation of the networked
system are essential requirements. IEEE 1355 standard
technology has the potential to satisfy these criteria. The
demand for a free topology and a capacity for plug and play
require that the configuration of the network is
re\-discovered and mapped automatically, and at regular
intervals. This paper describes such a configuration mapping
