%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
