LAN - Local Area Network
Last Updated: 2015-10-27 15:26:38 | Category: Internet and Telephone Access

This describes when several computers are connected together, communicating with each other, over a network link via methods such as a Wi-Fi (wireless) or wired Ethernet connection/link. The local aspect signifies that the networked computers are in close proximity to one another, such as in an office or house. Networked computers can share files, printers, access to each other's peripherals and even Internet access.
