List of main disadvantages. - If Sever develops a fault then users may not be able to run the application programs. - A fault in the network can cause user to lose the data. -If the network stops operating then it may not be possible to access to various computers. - It is difficult to make the system secure from hackers, novices or industrial espionage. - Decisions on resource planning tend to become centralized. - Networks that have grown with little thought can be inefficient in the long term. -As traffic increases on a network the performance degrades unless it is designed properly. - The larger the network becomes difficult to manage.
The main disadvantage of a metropolitan area network is that it requires expensive cutting edge technology that must be installed immediately the network is set up. For instance, the copper telephone wire network used by other networks is considered too slow and obsolete for use in MANs.
Advantages Of WAN
-Messages can be sent very quickly to anyone else on the network. These messages can have pictures, sounds, or data included with them (called attachments).
-Expensive things (such as printers or phone lines to the internet) can be shared by all the computers on the network without having to buy a different peripheral for each computer.
-Everyone on the network can use the same data. This avoids problems where some users may have older information than others.
-Share information/files over a larger area
Disadvantages Of WAN
-Setting up a network can be an expensive and complicated experience. The bigger the network the more expensive it is.
-Security is a real issue when many different people have the ability to use information from other computers. Protection against hackers and viruses adds more complexity and expense.
-Once set up, maintaining a network is a full-time job which requires network supervisors and technicians to be employed.
-Information may not meet local needs or interests
-Volunerable to hackers or other outside threats
Disadvantages of Metropolitan Area Networks
One disadvantage is that they have limited range, and can be expensive.
these are all concepts and they have different application areas. I think it is not appropriate to make that kind of argument.
Main Disadvantages of WAN is that it is not secure
Disadvantages in tiny area networks are mostly in the size as it does not take as much room as huge area network would this becomes a problem when you want to fend of predators such as bears who see tiny networks as their prey
disadvantages of using network
What are the disadvantages of having a network in an office?
Metropolitan Area Network also known as MAN is a composition of several connected Local Area Networks. Its advantages are seamless file sharing over large networks and users can share high-speed internet connection. Its high cost of installation is one of its disadvantages.
As the network consists of many computers over the span of a city (various HAN networks) the connection can lag or become quite slow.
The disadvantages of a tree network are that it requires alot of cable to network and that if the central hub fails then the entire network fails. Also, it is not a prudent expense for a small network.

There is only one type of LAN. If you are asking for the type of networks then they are the following: LAN - Local Area Network WLAN - Wireless Local Area Network VLAN - Virtual LAN WAN - Wide Area Network MAN - Metropolitan Area Network SAN - Storage Area Network, System Area Network, Server Area Network, or sometimes Small Area Network CAN - Campus Area Network, Controller Area Network, or sometimes Cluster Area Network PAN - Personal Area Network DAN - Desk Area Network

disadvantages: 1. implenentation cost is high. 2. not ideal for temporary network setup 3. not flexible.
