There are different networks:
Re: Concepts and types of networks
The different types of network:
LAN (local area network) are the local networks. The computers are connected through cables in a small geographical area. (we usually use Ethernet technology to connect the PC)
A LAN is a combination of PCs being close to each other connected to the network (either with son and in this case often for ethernet technology that allows up to 100 Mbits per second (Gbit 1 for GigaEthernet) or without son with technologies such as WiFi).
The MAN (Metropolitan Area Network) are used to connect multiple LAN close them. To link them, it makes use of routers and fiber optic cables allowing access to high speed.
The WAN (Wide Area Network which means WAN) are used to connect remote LANs together. The flow becomes increasingly weak in terms of distance.
The Internet is a combination of WAN.
