A computer network is a connection system in which two or more computers are connected together. Connected computers share each other's hardware, software and resources, and build communication systems.

                                             1. Application software,

                                             2.Network software and

                                             3.Network Hardware.

                                            1. Local Area Network (LAN),

                                            2. Metropolitan Area Network (MAN) and

                                            3. Wide Area Network (WAN).
