Hi,

There are three different types of network
1.LAN(Local Area Network)
2.MAN(Metropolitan Area Network)
3.WAN(Wide Area Network)

LAN:
Smallest computer network.It connects computers and devices within a limited geographical area,it may be home or school etc.

MAN
It is a large computer network.Basically,it is used in a city or a large campus. A MAN usually interconnects a number of local area networks (LANs) using a high-capacity backbone technology, such as fiber-optical links and provides up-link services to wide area networks (or WAN) and the Internet.

WAN
It is a wide computer network.It has no geographical,regional bound.It is different with LAN,CAN(Campus Area Network) which are bounded in a limited region.

Thanks.
