Computers on a network may get connected through cables, telephone lines, etc. Local Area Network or LAN is a network that is limited to small area.

You can use a LAN to set-up your home network. To start a home network, first of all you need to start the network hardware. You need to set the IP address for the devices in order to access it in your home network. You can access the systems in remote, if you have networked the systems in your home.
