Types of Networks
A network is two or more computers connected together and can usually share the same resources.

This is not advised for large businesses as more computers slow the network down
Client Server Network

Software and data is stored on the server so all can access it but if the main computer fails so does the whole network

This is where terminals are connected together over a very large area, an example of this is the internet.
