Yes, it can. You can use for printers with own NIC, or you can connect your printer to a printer server, or you can connect you printer to your router (not all routers support it), or you can connect the printer to your computer which is connected to the network and share the printer.

LAN means Local Area Network. It can connect computers within buildings and a limited area and can also share resources like printers.


It is possible to share a printer on a network. For example: two computers sharing one printer while the computers are connected to a home network (local Area Network - LAN). To share files between two computers, mark a folder or drive as shared - search Google on sharing files for more info.


LAN stands for 'Local Area Network'Local Area Network


A LAN or local area network is a computer network that includes computers in the local area. At my work location, there have been local area networks that serve the building. About 12 years ago, they connected our local area network to 5 or 6 other of our buildings located a mile or two away, and it was not local, anymore: It was then a wide area network, or WAN.


A Local Area Network is a connection between computers in a small physical area.




A local Area Network is a set of hosts (Computers, printers etc) all connected together with a device such as a router or switch. All devices that are part of your home network are on your LAN.A WAN or Wide Area Network are multiple LANs or networks logically linked together that are able to communicate to each other outside their own network.That's the easiest way to explain it. message me if you need more info.

A wide area network (WAN) is a geographically dispersed telecommunications network. The term distinguishes a broader telecommunication structure from a local area network (LAN). A wide area network may be privately owned or rented, but the term usually connotes the inclusion of public (shared user) networks. An intermediate form of network in terms of geography is a metropolitan area network (MAN).

A home area network is a version of a local area network, but is restricted to a smaller area which is typically just one dwelling. A local area network is a similarly small area network but may be larger to encompass a few buildings such as office premises or a school with several buildings.

GWAN = Gigabit WAN WAN = Wide Area Network LAN = Local Area Network WLAN = Wireless Local Area Network MAN = Metropolitan Area Network


I am pretty sure that a WAN connection would not be needed for a home network. A WAN is a Wide-Area Network. A WAN would be used to connect to your business computer from home. A LAN is a Local-Area Network. It should be sufficient if the network is simply for sharing files or printers, etc.
