LAN – Local Area Network – usually a small network, within a small geographic area. An example of this would be a small office, with 2 or more computers connected to the same printer. Another example would be a school, where several computers are connected to shared resources (pronters, faxes, etc) and are then connected to the internet or some other kind of WAN.
