A LAN is geographically the smallest type of computer network.It is two or more computers connected by communications media in a small geographical area.

@lilsweetangel,
Yes, the first result of the 3rd link I gave you says:

Wikipedia wrote:
Wide Area Network (WAN) is a computer network that covers a broad area (i.e., any network whose communications links cross metropolitan, regional, or national boundaries [1]). Less formally, a WAN is a network that uses routers and public communications links [1]. Contrast with personal area networks (PANs), local area networks (LANs), campus area networks (CANs), or metropolitan area networks (MANs) which are usually limited to a room, building, campus or specific metropolitan area (e.g., a city) respectively. The largest and most well-known example of a WAN is the Internet.
