For some people, the computer itself could be scary stuff, considering the fact of the complexity of the machine. Talking about computer networks could give heart to such people. However, it is not as scary as it may sound.

Computer Networking could be understood by separating the two words in time. A “computer” as we know is a complex machine that allows us to extract information. “Networking” refers to connect or attach. The computer network would simply mean that two or more computers connected. When we say the word “connected” in this reference means that one computer could be accessed through the other.

Broadly speaking, there are two ways to connect two or more computers. The first is called a wired network and the other is called the wireless network. Both of these are great people to learn and understand. However, in language a player is that it can be said that when two or more computers are connected by wire it is called a wired network. And when they are connected without wires through a wireless router, it is known as a wireless network. As wired networks are limited to the area where the wire web is installed in the same way has a wireless range limitations. The number of machines that are on the network would ensure the speed of the network. More machines in the network would mean slow

Local Area Network; Campus Area Network; Metropolitan Area Network; Wide Area Network; Global Network and last but not least internet, intranet or extranet.
