LAN term explained

LAN Local Area Network

This is a common setup in small offices. It is used to link 2 or more computers together, which enables the sharing of Internet connections and files or peripherals.

A LAN refers to a small area where computers are connected. They provide high-speed data transfer ranging from 100kbps to 1gbps.

The computers connected this way, will be able to transfer files between computers at this high speed.

I have a LAN setup in my home office. It can be beneficial if you need to have an Internet connection on 2 different machines, or you want to make quick and effective backups of important files.

For gamers, you can run a game on both computers and play against each other. This is great fun in racing and shooting games.
