Invention of computers changed the working style of people in twentieth century. Its capability to tirelessly and sequentially do arithmetical and logical operations made the human life simpler and faster. Offices, universities, banks, schools etc. nothing remained unaffected by use of computers. This was not enough and before the end of twentieth century we succeeded in creating a global network of computers that provides ways to exchange information and to communicate among all computers connected to the network. This global network of computers is what we now call Internet (or simply net). Internet, in fact, is the short form of INTER-NETwork which is the interconnected network of all worldwide servers.
Networking of computers:
The way Internet works Two or more than two computers are said to be networked when they are able to exchange information between them. This sharing of information can be through wires connecting these computers or some wireless means of communications like Wi-Fi. Networking of computers at small scale (e.g. within an office, a building or a school) is called Local Area networking (LAN). One can also connect devices like printer, scanner, etc. to a LAN.
One can built such a local area network of computers within an institution by connecting all or some of their computers. Every LAN has some main computers called server computers. These servers are used to connect LAN to other networks through telephone lines or satellites. In this way, by connecting various LAN, a Wide Area Network (WAN) is created
Various interlinked WAN together constitute what we call an Internet. All information related to a local network is stored in server computers of LAN. The servers of every LAN act as channel for information exchange between computers connected to LAN and also servers of other networks. Every computer that extracts information from a server is called a client computer.
